LBBC's Reach & Raise is not your typical charity walk or run - we've put a twist on it.
By having everybody participate together in an all-levels, large-group yoga activity, we've created a community-building celebration that combines yoga, music, our Healthy Living Expo and personal stories that inspire us all while supporting people in your community who are affected by breast cancer.

Rest assured LBBC's Reach & Raise is designed so that anyone can participate, regardless of age, physical fitness or previous experience with yoga. 
This event is rain-or-shine!
