2019 Yoga Adventure Fundraising Trips
Susan G. Komen®
Breast cancer invaded my family when I was 8 years old; my mother was 36. Losing my mom was not an option for me, but, as a single mother in 1984, losing her breasts was not an option for her. She was afraid of what people would think and of how she’d look. The path she chose allowed her to keep her breasts but took her in and out of remission. She hoped for the best with treatment to avoid whispers about a disease no one talked about.
The conversation around breast cancer has changed, but it didn’t change on its own. The grassroots efforts of Susan G. Komen® began changing perceptions right around the time my mom was diagnosed. Their persistent, strong and vibrant voice has brought the fight against breast cancer to the forefront and has given cancer-fighters and survivors the power of community. I still have an emotional connection to this fight, so when the opportunity to partner with Susan G. Komen arose, The Travel Yogi was ready. Travel and yoga are healers individually; mix them together and it’s pure magic.
Our yoga retreat adventures harness the power of wellness, adventure, community and friendship. For 2019 and 2020 we are riotously excited to announce three trips per year where 100% of the trip’s profit will be donated to Susan G. Komen. We believe in the power of adventure, of community, of yoga and of healing. Our adventures are designed to empower our travelers and, with this partnership, our travelers will also be empowering a community of fighters, survivors, activists and families through our donation to Komen.
Susan G. Komen is a global force for change, for strength, for empowerment and for a cure. In the thirty plus years since its inception, they have raised over $889 million for breast cancer research. This powerhouse has also invested another $1.95 billion to programs that provide medical supplies, insurance co-pays, living expenses, education, screening as well as invaluable support and advocacy. Travel is a life changing activity, so is cancer. The Travel Yogi is harnessing the power of our adventures to benefit those who travel with us as well as those fighting the fight. The Travel Yogi is proud to support Susan G. Komen and the community of survivors, scientists, researchers and friends that rally to support one another and this cause. We survive to thrive.
