Thank You to Everyone Who Participated in Yoga on the Steps: Denver!

This was the 3rd year for Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) signature education and fundraising event Yoga on the Steps: Denver, and the weather could not have been more gorgeous on September 13. Close to 200 people came together for a unique and inspirational yoga experience at Cheesman Park.  Participants enjoyed a glorious morning practicing yoga under sunny skies during a class lead by Jennifer Schelter and accompanied by Yvette and her spirited band of musicians. They also had the chance to explore our Healthy Living Expo to learn more about local area services, get a henna tattoo and enjoy healthy snacks from Whole Foods.

So far, with the help of all of our participants, we have raised almost $17,000 in support of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Kansas City and across the country. We are still working hard to meet our goal of $50,000, and all gifts received by October 31, 2014 will be counted toward our 2014 event total. Please continue to fundraise and help us hit our target!


Special thanks to our top team and individual prize winners:


Top Individual Fundraiser – Theresa Ely
Top Fundraising Team  – Besties for Breasties – Jessica Weidknecht, Captain


A very special thank you Claire Petretti Marti, our speaker; Murphy & KOSI; and RC Visual.

For more than 20 years, LBBC has been providing educational resources and support services to further its mission of connecting people to trusted information and a community of support. The funds raised at Yoga on the Steps: Denver help LBBC expand these services to help individuals navigate life following a breast cancer diagnosis.
