Is there a fundraising minimum? There is no fundraising minimum, however, City of Hope needs support to continue offering exquisite care and complementary therapies (such as yoga and meditation) to patients, researching less toxic treatments and seeking a cure for cancer. Stretching from San Diego to countries across the globe, people are benefiting from the innovative medical research that takes place at City of Hope. The purpose of Yoga for Hope is to raise both awareness of the healing power of yoga, and much needed funds for this cutting edge research and the treatment programs at City of Hope. Please be a part of turning hope into reality.
