Share Article

On August 13, an anticipated 1,000 health-conscious San Diegans will spread their yoga mats on Petco Park’s centerfield grass for the sixth annual Yoga for Hope, the largest grassroots yoga fundraiser in Southern California. The event will feature a 90-minute yoga class led by celebrated and acclaimed yoga instructors Seane Corn, Stacy McCarthy, Michael Fukumura and Claire Petretti Marti, as well as an on-site yoga marketplace with more than 25 vendors.

Yoga for Hope proudly showcases San Diego’s premier yoga studios and wellness enthusiasts, as they join together to raise funds for cancer research, promote the benefits of yoga, and show support for City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer treatment and research. Proceeds from the event benefit research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope, aiding the center’s efforts to expand awareness of the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection when battling cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.

Seane Corn, this year’s Yoga for Hope ambassador, is an internationally renowned yoga instructor and personality.

“I’m involved with Yoga for Hope because I’m so grateful that there is a center that focuses on research, focuses on patient care, focuses on the community of disease and the impact that it has on so many people,” she says. “It’s a small amount of time, energy and effort to really make a difference in many, many people’s lives. All you need is your mat, your breath, your heart.”

Media is invited to film and photograph from the field and elevated access for spectacular overhead shots. Interview opportunities include cancer survivors, yoga instructors, large teams and Robyn Hima, director of Philanthropy, City of Hope.
