10th Annual Build a Better You Yoga-thon Fundraiser

10th Annual Build a Better You Yoga-thon Fundraiser

WHY I DO IT & WHY I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT

I have deep gratitude and passion for the Montreal Children's Hospital, a place where my family spent several weeks of our lives when one of my sons was young, and thankfully, our story had a happy ending. I do not take this for granted; not everyone is so fortunate. I have equal gratitude and passion for the practice of yoga which I know has changed my life and many others for the better.

These two passions bring me to raise funds for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation (MCHF) for the 10th year in a row!

This year, I'm honoured to be co-teaching the event with Brandee Safran. Brandee is a mom like myself, and has a special place in her heart for the Children's Hospital. She's been teaching yoga for about 30 years and will bring her own unique energy to our practice on Nov. 10th.

As a special treat, we will also be joined by Myriam Turenne who has just put out her first solo album. Her musical accompaniment will make our already special morning, magical.

Over the last 9 years, with YOUR help, we've raised close to $35,000 !

When my son was hospitalized years ago, thankfully, we had the resources and support system necessary to stay in the hospital with him at all times. Not all families have this "luxury" - some parents must keep working to pay for medication, treatments, and other related costs. THAT IS WHY I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT, FOR THE 10th YEAR IN A ROW!!

Together, while enjoying a meaningful yoga practice, we can raise funds to help these families.

Please join me for a gentle, mindful yoga practice on Sunday November 10th @ 11AM.

ALL LEVELS OF YOGIS WELCOME, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

100% OF PROCEEDS go to the TINY TIM FUND (Providing critical support to families of sick kids. Everything from helping to buy medications and wheelchairs, to helping with costs of accommodations and meals for parents that live out-of-town, and are in need.)

Participate. Donate. Let's make a difference.

We really ARE "Better Together"
