In 2012, more than 600 people gathered in six cities across the nation in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Calgary to perform the 108 Sun Salutation Challenge. Together, participants all over the country performed a combined 720 minutes of yoga, and an estimated 64,800 sun salutations in support of Care for Children.

The 2012 Yogathon Challenge coincided with United Day Humanitarian Day, a global celebration of people helping people. The collective enthusiasm, dedication and gratitude of participants across the country was so inspiring that we decided to make this an annual event.

Plans for Yogathon 2013 are already underway for Saturday, August 17, 2013 – Save the Date! The 108 Sun Salutation Challenge promises yoga experts, fitness buffs and beginners alike a day of fun and challenge with all proceeds supporting Care for Children. So why not bring along your yoga mat and join us in spreading the message of peace?
