Charity event supports health and education

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- It’s a charity to support children, but is a unique and healthy way to raise funds.

Sponsored by the Art of Living, Rio Rancho Yoga is putting on a Yogathon to help support the cause Care for Children. Care for Children supports education of children in rural and remote areas of India.

It’s similar to a walk or run-a-thon. Participants are asked to complete 108 surya namaskar. Surya namaskar are different poises used in yoga that each last around a minute.

For those who need to take a break or those who have completed their personal goal can enjoy social hour with live music.

The team is trying to raise $1,000. All proceeds go to the cause Care for Children.

Join 46 other cities around the world participating in the Yogathon. There is a onetime $25 registration fee.
