Pink and Flow Yoga Event to Benefit Breast Cancer Treatment
Emily Laput, a high school senior who is passionate about the fight against breast cancer, is the Event Coordinator for a special yoga fundraising event, Pink and Flow, held on August 14 from 10:30am to 12:30pm at Riverwalk Circuit Training, in Seymour. The event will start with a one-hour, all-levels vinyasa yoga class and end with raffles and smoothies provided by Robeks, all to benefit the nonprofit organization Seymour Pink.
Seymour Pink has been funding local breast cancer patients’ treatment for over 12 years. Laput has been volunteering for Seymour Pink since 2017 and has so far raised over $10,000 for various local charities. “The strength of the Seymour Pink community is unmatched. I’ve never seen a nonprofit with such passion, connection and support from various people and businesses,” explains Laput. “One of the most striking aspects of this organization is that it’s all-volunteer—a community fighting passionately.”
Victoria Mellah from Yoga Mobile Studio will be leading the yoga class. “She is amazing and provides modifications for various experience levels so that anyone can be able to participate in the flow,” explains Laput.
Raffle tickets are $1 each and will be available to purchase online and in person. Over 20 raffles are available. “I was very conscious of having a diverse selection of raffles because I knew that my audience was also diverse. Raffles range from healthy snack baskets, to gift cards to various businesses, to massages, to books. You’ll be sure to find something that catches your eye,” says Laput.
Registration is $25 per person and closes on August 14. If registering more than one person, use code BRINGAFRIEND to save $5. The event is sponsored by Brown Roofing, a frequent supporter of Seymour Pink.
