Monday, November 11th, 2013, Yoga Loft will be hosting their Second Annual Yogathon. During this event, 100% of the day's proceeds will be donated to Angie's Spa Cancer Foundation, a charitable cancer foundation that funds free massage, acupuncture, and other therapeutic services to those undergoing cancer treatments. Jala Clothing, among many other businesses, will be donating a $50 gift card for the goodie bags of all the participants at the event. If you are a business and would like to donate items for the goodie bags, please contact Christine Comito and/or Marissa Aladro. The fundraiser is not limited to businesses, though, anyone can donate with just the price of their class as well as a monetary donation, or you can donate online anytime.
I had a minute to speak with Marissa, the operations manager at Yoga Loft, and she was able to shed a little more light on the fundraiser. "We first heard about Angie's spa after one of our teacher's, Christine Comito, was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer. Once she began undergoing multiple surgeries and chemo treatments we knew we wanted to help, but other than a food tree we were at a loss. It was Christine who came up with the idea of hosting our first fundraiser last year."
Far too many people struggle with this disease every day, and Yoga Loft's Second Annual Yogathon is a wonderful way for everyone to get involved and make a difference. Make sure to join Yoga Loft tomorrow where the Yoga Loft staff will be giving hands on adjustments to people who take their classes that day. If you can't make it this Monday, you can also donate online at www.angiespa.org!
