Come in and sign a prayer flag in honor of someone you know who has been touched by cancer.This fundraiser is in honor of our yoga buddy Mark Kent, an 11 year cancer survivor of a nasty bout with melanoma metastasized to the lymphatic system, who will be riding for you and your loved ones to support cancer research in this year's Pan-Mass Challenge. The event is a chance for us to introduce Stacey Duquette, a skillful and experienced yoga teacher, who will lead us in a joyful yoga experience to welcome the light and abundance of Summer's Blessings, and embody the essence of the sun!
Stacey will lead us through a "full-spectrum Vinyasa Flow" style class that will focus on the heart chakra and celebrating the miracle of life. Known as "Prana Flow" this special class will utilize music & fluid movement; be prepared to groove your practice and experience a unique meditation in motion. This is flow style class, appropriate for those with some previous yoga experience but...all are welcome!
Founded in 1980, the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is an annual bike-a-thon that today raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country. The PMC donates 100% of every rider raised dollar to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through it's Jimmy Fund.
For more information and other ways to donate or support visit this site. Read more about Mark in his letter "Why I Ride". At Heartsong, checks may be made out to PMC Jimmy Fund.A message from Mark:
In the past, I carried notes (or simply names) from donors that are in memory, or in honor of friends and loved ones touched by cancer along with me for the ride. Along much of the ride for both days, there are spectators, well wishers and survivors cheering on the riders. As a rider, the energy and love washes over you and feeds your heart and legs in a way that brings goosebumps and sometimes tears.
This year, once again, my ride will incorporate the tradition of Tibetan prayer flags, inscribed with names and messages to and from those touched by cancer. The ancient symbols displayed on these flags, known as "wind horse" flags, produce a spiritual vibration that is activated and carried by the wind across the countryside to quietly harmonize the environment, impartially increasing happiness and good fortune among all living beings.Benefit for the Pan-Mass Challenge
