On Sunday, March 4, thousands of Canadians at locations across the country will join together for the sixth year in a row to help raise money for arthritis and autoimmune disease research in the Power of Movement yoga fundraiser! This amazing initiative has already raised more than one million dollars and this year, the founders hope to raise an additional $500,000 to help find a way for those with arthritis to wave goodbye to joint pain once and for all.
The Power of Movement fundraiser consists of 23 yoga mega sessions from Vancouver to Halifax that will be held simultaneously across Canada. I think this is such an amazing fundraiser, especially since yoga can be extremely helpful in treating the pain of arthritis by improving blood circulation and removing unwanted toxins from the body. Not to mention the amazing emotional benefits that yoga provides too!
And arthritis is a cause that really does deserve notice. Over 4.2 million Canadians over 15 years of age suffer from the disease. Arthritis always makes me think of my grandmother; she once loved to crochet but in her later years her hands were so twisted with arthritis that she couldn’t even dress herself some days. I can’t imagine how hard it was for her to be so helpless when she was once so capable, but that’s the kind of anguish that people with arthritis have to suffer through every day.
To raise awareness about this incredible cause, Power of Movement is offering a Better Health Prize Pack to one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader. Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak has experienced firsthand the benefits of a healthy diet – resulting in his own health transformation and weight loss. Anthony will continue his health regime by participating in the Power of Movement fundraiser and one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader is going to win a copy of Anthony’s cookbook The Main: Recipes and a YogaFit Canada DVD to help start them on their own road to good health!
So this March 4, why not join health enthusiasts across Canada and move for a cause in the Power of Movement event? Your body and mind will both be nourished after participating in this healthy and hope-inspiring fundraiser!
