Yoga enthusiasts are invited to help support cancer research and honor loved ones affected by cancer by participating in the first annual “Yoga on the Green” at Huntington Park on Saturday, September 14, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. The outdoor wellness event, sponsored by Ohio Cancer Research (OCR), will be led by studio professionals, including renowned yoga instructor Rodney Yee. A $25 tax-deductible donation online or at the door secures a spot, with 100% of proceeds helping fund cutting-edge cancer research in Ohio.

Yoga activities, accompanied by music and videos, will be held on the baseball stadium field, with magnificent views of the downtown Columbus Skyline. The sessions will be interspersed with giveaways, health and wellness exhibitors, and messages of hope presented by cancer survivors. Healthy refreshments will be available throughout the morning.

“Research has shown a strong correlation between the calming effect of yoga and the healing of our bodies,” explains Executive Director Bill Boggess. “This wellness event is meant to showcase the value of yoga as a therapy in the cancer journey and share the hope for a cure with our community.”

Ohio Cancer Research is an independent, statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to the cure and prevention of cancer, and the reduction of its debilitating effects through aggressive basic seed-money research, cancer information and awareness.
