This was the 13th year for Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) signature education and fundraising event, and the weather could not have been more gorgeous. More than 1,500 people came together for a unique and inspirational yoga experience on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Participants enjoyed a glorious morning basking in the sun, an inclusive yoga class and the chance to explore our Healthy Living Expo while snacking on delicious salads from café sponsor honeygrow.
So far, thanks to our participants and sponsors, we have raised close to $275,000 towards our goal of $310,000. We are still working hard to meet our goal and all gifts received by June 30, 2014 will be counted. Please continue to fundraise and help us reach target!
Special thanks to our top team and individual prize winners:
Top Individual Fundraiser – Andi Morris
Top Fundraising Team Overall – Team Dreams
Top Yoga Studio Team – YogaSphere
Top New Team – Just Another Yoga Pose for Robyn
Biggest Team – Team Kangaroom
