Please join us for a special donation-only class to support the work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF)!
Center of Balance will hold a Pilates and Yoga Progression class taught by Owen Grady to raise money in support of LAF's work helping people who are battling cancer to live strong. 100% of the money raised will be donated to LAF.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation believes that in the battle with cancer, unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything. Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist, Lance Armstrong, the LAF provides the practical information and tools people living with cancer need to live strong.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation's mission is to inspire and empower people with cancer to live strong. It serves its mission through education, advocacy, public health and research programs. More than 10 million Americans are currently living with, through or beyond cancer.
- More than 1.3 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
- Of adults diagnosed with cancer today, 64% will be living five years from now.
- One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.
- Three in four families will care for a family member with cancer.
