2017 Mid-Year Review • Yoga For A Cause
Back in February of this year, Worcester Fitness Yoga Instructor Jeanine Mchugh Skorinko went to Director of Fitness and Wellness Andy Sharry with an idea. Worcester Fitness would create a monthly event, centered around a yoga class, that not only introduced the positive effects of yoga, but also helped a local non-profit organization by raising money during the event.
Yoga for a Cause was born!
Now over six-months later, Yoga for a cause is now one of our most popular events with members and friends alike.
As we approach another beautiful New England Autumn, we wanted to update you on the results of the program.
Yoga For A Cause is a monthly yoga class. It generally is scheduled for the first Saturday in each month. The class is unique in that both members AND non-members are invited to participate. Members and guests are asked to contribute $5.00 per class for the charity or non-profit organization supported that week.
Participants can sign up via the Worcester Fitness Mind Body app and can convienently access the app via Facebook or a blog post on worcesterfitness.com a few days prior to the event.
Here is a complete list of charitable organizations supported by Worcester Fitness through the Yoga for a Cause program along with the total amount donated as a result of the event. Donations are delivered directly to each organization.
Sherry's House/Why Me - $160
Worcester Animal Rescue League - $125
Abby's House - $50
Rachel's Table - $65
Veterans, Inc - $106
Ivy Child - $60
Planting the Seed Foundation - $100
