Part of Susan G. Komen® ‘Bold Goal’
Carlsbad CA— As part of its Spring 2017 More Than Pink movement in support of Susan G. Komen, Carlsbad Premium Outlets announced that it will be participating in project:OM, the world’s largest yoga event, created by renowned yoga brand Manduka, in partnership with Susan G. Komen.
Taking place Mother’s Day Weekend – May 12-14, 2017 – the one million person yoga event aims to unite individuals, families and the collective yoga community to raise funds to support Susan G. Komen and its Bold Goal of reducing breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the next decade. More than 60 Simon Malls, The Mills and Premium Outlets will host project:OM events, many of which will be taught by Manduka-approved instructors. A suggested $10 donation from each participant will benefit Susan G. Komen.
“Hosting a project:OM yoga event is a unique way to celebrate health and wellness during Mother’s Day weekend,” said Terri Mannes. “The suggested $10 donation to participate will go to Susan G. Komen, making the event even more meaningful. We look forward to seeing Carlsbad Premium Outlets transformed into a yoga studio on Saturday, May 13.”
“We are incredibly excited to be working with one of our premier partners, Simon, on project:OM,” said Susan G. Komen’s Senior Vice President of Development Christina Alford. “Working in conjunction with our vast network of affiliates across the country, Simon is integral in helping us spread the word about the positive effects of yoga for those facing breast cancer, while moving us closer to achieving our Bold Goal.”
