About Yoga 4 Hope
As of May 1, 2018, Transition to Betterness partnered with Yoga 4 Hope founders, Pajama Angels United We Cure, a local non-profit charity, to continue their signature-funding program: Wing Power Fund.
The Wing Power Fund is intended to help people who experience financial hardship as a result of their cancer/chronic disease diagnosis and treatment. The program helps people at every point of their journey including diagnosis, treatment, palliative care and survivorship.
Pajama Angels was established in 2007 by two sisters Darlene Szecsei-Albano and Judy Beale, in honour of their late sister Maggie who lost her battle with cancer in 2002. It was their mission to provide integrative therapies for those with life-altering illnesses. The Wing Power Fund is intended to help those who experience financial hardship during their journey battling a life-altering illness. Thanks to this special partnership, Transition to Betterness will be able to continue providing financial support for these therapies.
Pajama Angels have raised $65,000 per year on average over 11 years and have supported many local initiatives and charities in addition to their own. Under their watch, the Yoga 4 Hope event alone raised $205,000 overall since 2008. Since 2013, they have helped over 198 people through their Wing Power Fund alone and disbursed over $127,000 in funding.
Although Pajama Angels may no longer be a physical organization as of May 1, 2018, the Wing Power Fund and Yoga 4 Hope is a great legacy that will continue to benefit the community.
All proceeds will support the Pajama Angels Wing Power Fund.
