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 fifth year, this annual fundraiser supports childhood cancer treatments and research at CHEO. We are so excited to once again be back to our in-person format, with 24 amazing Ottawa yoga teachers taking us through 24 hours of yoga at the beautiful Ottawa Art Gallery!
Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone
Last year, the number of kids diagnosed with cancer at CHEO grew to over 100, and more than 500 children were in various stages of cancer treatment. A cancer diagnosis is life altering, resulting in aggressive treatments and an uncertain future for kids and their families.
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 less than 5% of research funding going to childhood cancer research, the need is very real.
Join Our Passionate Community
Help make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer. You can donate here and help us reach our goal. Or you can also register to be a part of 24Hr Yogapalooza and fundraise with us!
Fundraising efforts lead up to our incredible main event - 24Hr Yogapalooza - a “relay style” yogathon beginning the morning of September 25 at the Ottawa Art Gallery, where fundraisers are welcome to join in any number of 24 one-hour consecutive yoga classes concluding the morning of September 26th. Maybe you want to do all 24!
CHEO’s Fastest Growing Fundraiser
Starting in 2018 with just a small group of likeminded yogis with a desire to make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer, 24Hr Yogapalooza raised over $24,000! Now moving into our fifth year, as a community we have raised over $180,000 for childhood cancer research and this year we are going to raise even more!
Our BIG 2022 Goal:
Our goal has always been to raise as much money as possible. This year we are setting our fundraising target higher than ever before: we’re going BIG to $65,000! With the help of the people like you, the community, and our incredible sponsors, we know we can do it!
