My Mom Vicki Anoff was diagnosed with cancer in July 2017. The following September I hosted a yoga class fundraiser for the American Cancer Society at One Down Dog, the yoga studio where I am an instructor and manager. Instead of sitting back and not doing ANYTHING, I wanted to put my energy into raising money to help those affected by cancer. The class was themed around Girl Power, using our power for good! And boy did we, my Girl Power Donation Yoga Flow raised $3,897! After my fundraiser, I continued to work with ACS and led the yoga cool down at the 2017 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Downtown Los Angeles.
I want to continue to support this cause all year long. Each month I will be donating the proceeds from some of my yoga classes to this campaign. It's only a little bit but it's something! My Mom passed away in June, this is my way to continue to honor her and help make a difference for others. <3
