Yogani Studios Inc. to Host Yoga Gives to St. Jude Kids
One 8-hour retreat, 20 yoga studios nationwide, thousands of children’s lives saved from deadly diseases
WHO: Approximately 20 yoga studios across the country, including Yogani Studios Inc., in Tampa, FL, are breathing life into an inaugural program called Yoga Gives to St. Jude Kids to raise awareness and funding for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
WHAT: Yoga Gives to St. Jude Kids is designed for people of all ages with diverse levels of experience to not only stretch their bodies but also open their hearts for kids battling cancer and other deadly diseases by raising funds through an 8-hour yogathon.
WHY: Because of fundraisers like this one, no patient family ever pays St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for anything and its research discoveries continue to be shared freely, so that one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. In fact, during the last 50 years, St. Jude researchers and doctors have helped push overall survival rates of childhood cancer from 20 percent to 80 percent today.

ABOUT: Since opening in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
