There's an outdoor yogathon for a great cause happening this July

On July 8, you can head to Heywood Park in North Vancouver and take part in a new ‘Big Yoga for Big Sisters‘ yogathon in aid of a wonderful cause.

Hosted by the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland (BCLM), proceeds raised from the event will go towards supporting the organization’s three mentorship programs that help girls learn the skills, tools, and confidence they need to grow into their full potential as adults.

You have the option to take sign up as an individual, start your own team, or join a pre-existing team for a full six-hour yogathon or a three-hour half-yogathon. And all you’re asked to do is raise a minimum of $100 to support vulnerable girls in the Lower Mainland.

“We are proud to expand Big Yoga for Big Sisters into North Vancouver and New Westminster this year. We’re especially excited because this means more participants will be able to be a part of creating a healthy community, just like the Big Sisters program, ” said Brenda Gershkovitch, executive director at Big Sisters BCLM.

Running for its second year, Big Yoga for Big Sisters is set to host three events in three communities this summer. Dates have also been announced for New Westminster on August 12 and here in Vancouver on September 9.

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro yogi there will be something for you as the yogathons are open to all ages, levels, and styles.

So by stretching out into warrior one and downward dog poses, you can help give back to youth in your community. And when you register online, you can round up your own troop of up to 10 people and start warming up for the main event.
