Please join us in 2014, for our 13th annual “Yoga on the Steps” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. “Yoga on the Steps” is LBBC’s signature fundraising event and engages and connects over 2,000 participants at a large, outdoor yoga class suitable for all ages and all skill levels. “Yoga on the Steps” educates the community about healthy living and quality-of-life-issues while creating awareness and raising funds for LBBC’s education and support programs - which are always provided for little or no cost.
For over 20 years, Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) has been providing educational resources and support services to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.
Through your donations, LBBC has continued to expand services to help navigate the way through a breast cancer diagnosis. LBBC has earned its national reputation for delivering responsible, clear, credible and comforting information to individuals affected by breast cancer.
New this year… we have implemented a small registration fee which will include entrance to the event, and breakfast at the Healthy Living Expo. Fundraising is still the focus of the event and we hope you will all help us get to our goal this year of $310,000. Last year, teams raised an average of $1,300 and individuals raised an average of $150!
All participants that raise a total of $75 (including your $20 registration fee) will receive a Yoga on the Steps commemorative T-shirt.
Register today and start your fundraising!
Youth (11-18): $10
Children (10 and under): Free
