Whether you are a yoga enthusiast, or just looking to give back to your community, 24Hr Yogapalooza is an incredible opportunity to help kids with cancer. Going into its third year, this annual fundraiser supports childhood cancer treatments and research at CHEO.
Last year, 93 children were diagnosed with cancer at CHEO and more than 500 children were in various stages of cancer treatment. A cancer diagnosis is life altering, it can mean aggressive treatments and an uncertain future for children.
CHEO is constantly working to ensure children can get the care they deserve, working to find innovative treatments to offer safer and gentler care. With only 3% of research funding going to childhood cancer research, the need is very real.
Help make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer. Register to be a part of 24Hr Yogapalooza today!
Fundraising efforts lead up to our new virtual 24Hr Yogapalooza event - 24 hours of yoga over 24 days. Keeping with the times, we have gone virtual in 2020, with a new class released daily for 24 days. Now everyone can join all 24 classes on your own time, supporting your own health and the kids at CHEO dealing with cancer.
Starting in 2018 with just a small group of like minded yogis with a desire to make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer, 24Hr Yogapalooza raised over $24,000! 2019 saw incredible growth, doubling the total raised to $53,212, with over 140 people involved.
Our goal has always been to raise as much money as possible for kids with cancer at CHEO. This year we know that things are different so we have adjusted our goals...but we are still committed to making a difference in the lives of kids with cancer. For 2020, we want to make sure that we not only maximize the money raised for childhood cancer research, but also raise awareness of the challenges faced by kids with cancer, all through our 24 hours of yoga over 24 days! With the help of the people like you, the community, and our incredible sponsors, we know we can do it!"
24Hr Yogapalooza 2020 is presented by Tony Graham Automotive Group, with support from Trend Micro and Lululemon.
