Reach & Raise

Reach & Raise: Yoga for a reason

After 20 incredible years, we are ending Reach & Raise - our signature fundraising event, to envision a new path forward. The world has changed in the way we gather, communicate, and connect with each other. It is time for us to change some of the ways we gather to support our community.

We are so grateful for all the participants, donors, sponsors, partners, and community members that have supported this event over the years. We thank award-winning yoga instructor, creativity coach, and mindfulness leader Jennifer Schelter, who has been the visionary behind this event, Yvette Pecoraro, our chant artist and songwriter, and the dedicated staff and board of Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

Reach & Raise became an annual event held on the iconic steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2001. Thousands of people have shared this yoga practice, coming together towards a common purpose of raising awareness and funds to support the work of Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Since its founding, more than 20,000 people from across the country have raised more than $4,000,000 in support of this resilient community.

During 2022, we will be designing a new signature fundraising event that reflects these changes. And in 2023, we will launch this new event that will connect participants from across the United States and honor the many ways people experience breast cancer.

As we make plans for our new event, we will be creating meaningful, personalized “do-it-yourself" fundraising events for 2022. We encourage you to learn more and get involved to make a difference.
