This was the 2nd year for Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) signature education and fundraising event Yoga on the Steps: Kansas City, and the weather could not have been more gorgeous. Close to 250 people came together for a unique and inspirational yoga experience at Barney Allis Plaza. 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 a delicious smoothie.
Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, Silpada Designs, for making this wonderful morning possible. So far, with their help, and the help of all of our participants, we have raised more than $46,000 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 $60,000, and all gifts received by August 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 – Starr Hayward
Top Fundraising Team Overall – Pound Puppies – Stephanie Haynes, Captain
Top Yoga Studio Team – Core Energy – Nici Krehbiel, Captain
Yoga on the Steps: Kansas City would not have been possible without the support of our presenting sponsor, Silpada Designs, as well as 99.7 The Point, 106.5 The Wolf, Susan G Komen of Greater Kansas City and Kansas City Fitness Magazine.
