Whether you are a yoga enthusiast, or just looking to give back to your community, 24Hr Yogapalooza is an incredible opportunity to help kids with cancer. Going into its fifth year, this annual fundraiser supports childhood cancer treatments and research at CHEO. We are so excited to once again be back to our in-person format, with 24 amazing Ottawa yoga teachers taking us through 24 hours of yoga at the beautiful Ottawa Art Gallery!
Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone
Last year, the number of kids diagnosed with cancer at CHEO grew to over 100, and more than 500 children were in various stages of cancer treatment. A cancer diagnosis is life altering, resulting in aggressive treatments and an uncertain future for kids and their families.
CHEO is constantly working to ensure children can get the care they deserve, working to find innovative treatments to offer safer and gentler care. With less than 5% of research funding going to childhood cancer research, the need is very real.
CHEO’s Fastest Growing Fundraiser
Starting in 2018 with just a small group of likeminded yogis with a desire to make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer, 24Hr Yogapalooza raised over $24,000! Now moving into our fifth year, as a community we have raised over $180,000 for childhood cancer research and this year we are going to raise even more!
