More than 70 yoga enthusiasts raised almost $1000 by wearing pink at a special class held at the Byron Yoga Retreat recently.
The annual event was held to raise awareness of women’s cancers, and funds for research and support services.
Yoga teacher Bec Isaacs was inspired to run the event in memory of her Aunt Cathie, who passed away after a 10 year struggle with cancer, and was overjoyed with the community’s response to the class.
‘Thank you! Because of you we raised $946.00 which will go directly towards breast and gynaecological cancer research, support and prevention programs. Together we are stronger! I love you all,” Ms Isaacs said.
‘Cancer Council NSW has contributed more than $4.5 million towards research for breast and gynaecological cancers since 2015, and this would not be achievable without incredible supporters like the Byron Yoga Retreat Centre,’ said Hannah Brooks, Cancer Council NSW Community Relations Coordinator.
