Yogathon charity event a huge success


Share This Article



The 4th annual Yogathon had a great turnout on Saturday, bringing in roughly $3,000 for Loaves and Fishes, with over 240 total participants.  The event, held at Premier Fitness included several classes from different instructors for all levels of experience and age. 

Organizations Whitnee Denard-Paul, Dan de Luis, and Julie Morel thanked their supporters who donated facilities, door prizes, silent auction items and their time to make the event a true success.  “We were extremely pleased with the turnout.  The support exceeded all expectations”, said de Luis. 

Choosing Loaves and Fishes, a local restaurant that offers meals for the less fortunate was an obvious choice for the group.  “Loaves and Fishes feeds the people of Brockville and the surrounding area, so we knew that all money raised would be going to people who are close to us and it would effect the community of Brockville directly”, said Denard-Paul. 

The event has grown substantially since its beginning in 2008.  Last year’s numbers saw less than 100 participants and less than half the money raised in this year’s fundraiser.  “The turnout was unbelievable”, said Denard-Paul.  “It’s amazing how much people can accomplish when they come together for a good cause”.
