Yoga for Hope Phoenix Will Directly Fund Research Programs at City of Hope, One of the Nation’s Leading Centers for Cancer Treatment and Research, as They Work To Develop New, Less Invasive Treatments with the Unending Hope of Finding Cures for Many Life Threatening Diseases Effecting Too Many Lives

The Phoenix office City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer treatment and research, announced the official launch of its third annual Yoga for Hope event taking place Sunday morning, October 21, 2012. Yoga For Hope will be hosted poolside on the rooftop of The W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. Yoga for Hope is an event for everyone regardless of their level of yoga experience (or lack thereof).

Its mission is to raise enough money to fund the necessary resources to find a cure for cancer. It will also strive to bring awareness to how important a strong mind-body-spirit connection is for patients battling life-threatening illnesses. The proceeds from this event will directly benefit research for new, less invasive treatments and ultimately a cure for all cancers, diabetes and other life threatening diseases.

The Yoga for Hope event was born out of City of Hope’s efforts to pair complimentary, alternative/integrative therapies like yoga and meditation with patients traditional medical treatment programs.

Incredibly talented leaders throughout the morning. They each come with a giving heart, their own unique styles, a variety of backgrounds and a whole lot of fun!
