Question: When is this event happening?
Answer: All day Wednesday, November 15, 2023 (see details below re: the LLH experience). While we are encouraging participants to practice at 11 am EST for a unified national experience, you may practice at any point throughout the day.
Question: How can I participate?
Answer: There are several ways to participate.
- You can make a one-time contribution in whatever amount you wish on the LLH Fundraising page: https://justgiving.com/campaign/lovelighthope
- Alternatively, you can set up your own fundraising page and have your family, friends, and colleagues join your efforts.
- And of course, you can share the LLH page and event information with your network!
*Note: Anyone who contributes to an existing fundraising page will also be able to participate in all the LLH events planned for November 15.
Question: Once I’ve signed up/contributed, what happens?
Answer: You will receive confirmation of your contribution via email. You will subsequently receive a second email closer to the LLH date of November 15 containing links (and respective instructions) to access all of the materials and programs that come with your LLH experience.
Question: What will be included in my LLH experience?
Answer: Anyone who signs up via a one-time contribution, creates their own fundraising page, and/or contributes to an existing fundraising page will receive access to the following on-demand, pre-recorded materials:
- Exclusive yoga session by lead instructor Brittany Torstrup
- Guided mediation session by cancer survivor, Cancer Hope Network Peer Mentor Volunteer, and USCC Certified Chaplain, Claudio Pannunzio
- Additional resources and video courtesy of yoga4cancer
*Note: If you wish to purchase LLH merchandise, you can do so separately by visiting our merchandise page. Please note these items usually take about 10 business days to arrive.
Question: While I would love to participate in Brittany’s yoga session, (a) I have a conflict at the scheduled time, and/or (b) I have a yoga studio/place where I already enjoy going to practice. What are my options?
Answer: Make the day your own! Many of us are regulars at yoga studios where we love going, or part of groups that get together outside or at friends’ homes to practice – please do that! We welcome everyone to bring love, light, and hope by practicing however they wish on November 15. And if you want to do both Brittany’s session and your separate class, the more the merrier! There are no limits!
All we ask is that you enjoy, celebrate, share your experience on social media (photos/videos of course encouraged when possible), tag us in your post @cancerhopenetwork using the hashtag #LoveLightHope and fill the day with love, light, and hope!
