"y4c Yogathon Leaders" a team to help raise needed funds for cancer survivor classes, scholarships and more!

We need your help! If we want to continue to help the hundreds of survivors that depend on our classes in NYC or provide more scholarships to yoga teachers throughout the US, we need to do some fundraising.

The good news is that many of our community of teachers & supporters have volunteered to support. So we have created a nationwide 'Yogathon' to provide a coordinated and relevant way to support our collective goals. Together, we are better.

Who will be on the team?

+ Our 2015 Kelly Considine Scholarships recipients
+ Our NYC teachers
+ Tari Prinster & other Retreat Project Board members
+ Other compassionate team members

What we need your help with?

Champion a ‘Yoga 4 Cancer Yogathon’ during the month of December at a local studio of your choice and when & how you would like. We will provide you the tools, guidance and support - like Razoo here.

What is a Yoga 4 Cancer Yogathon?

A Yogathon is an open level group yoga class created to unite a community around a great cause. Think 'Telethon' but via yoga! Our cause is to raise funds for the Retreat Project - Yoga 4 Cancer’s non-profit partner – in order to support programs like the Kelly Considine Scholarships, our NYC Classes and more.

Participants donate to attend the special class (all donations are tax deductible). Teacher & studio donate the space. Other elements – raffles, food, drinks etc – are fully up to you and can be very appealing and supportive.

The other benefit for this Yogathon is about helping establish YOU as a specialized trained instructor for yoga for cancer survivors. It provides a relevant and meaningful way to provide background to your training and generate business and interest in your expertise. We will provide you support on how to best do this during your Yogathon.

The Role of this page and Razoo:

Razoo is a crowd-fundraising tool for non-profits (like GoFundMe or Crowdrise but just for non-profits. It will enable you to easily collect, track and communicate with your donors and participants. Its a super easy system that we will help you with.

The intention is that every team member will set up their own fundraiser through the templates provided in this team page. You will then update your page with realvant information for your Yogathon such as location, time, details etc.

Also you must set your donation levels for your fundraiser. And please note people don't need to attend the yogathon to participate. So make sure your donations reflect that. We would suggest the following:

- $10 - A little something to help!
- $25 - Attendance to the Yogathon
- $50 - Attendance for you and a friend!
- $300 for a Full Scholarship for the next generation
- $1,000 a yoga4cancer class grant

Once everything is set up, the key to success of a Yogathon or any fundraiser is about telling people! Spreading the word via email, facebook, Twitter, posters... etc. Anyway to get your students, your friends and family.. your network to hear about your specialized training and donate to helping the next generation.

We will help you throughout this process in the following ways:

- Webinar to take you through the system, explain and support all your concerns, questions or needs.
- Monitoring and supporting your set up!
- Communicating via Facebook, emails etc..
- We will help you with everything!!!

Together we can help more survivors live longer, healthier and happier lives!
