Yoga Relay to Support Family Caregivers with Rotating Instructor Fri, Aug 18, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
You are invited to join us in raising support for our local caregivers by joining together in a yoga relay! What’s a Yoga Relay? We will do 100 sun salutations together - you can do them all yourself, or create a relay team and tag in and out as needed.

A caregiver is someone who provides care to another person who is elderly, ill, or disabled. Family caregivers receive little training on how to deliver complicated care. Not surprisingly, research shows that family caregivers are at increased risk for health, emotional, financial, and work-related problems. Hospice Savannah’s Edel Caregiver Institute is your community’s resource for hands-on training and support for family caregivers.

$30 minimum donation per person. If you want to do all of the sun salutations yourself, that’s great! If you want to create a team, each team member makes a $30 donation.

All proceeds will be donated to Hospice Savannah’s Edel Caregiver Institute. Last year we raised $5,000. This year, we're raising the bar. The goal is $10,000!

Location: the terrace at the Demere, Jr. Center for Living | 6000 Business Center Dr., Savannah, GA

Summer Challenge participants will get 100 points for participating, whether on a relay team or individually!
