EMBRACE PARTNERS WITH COREPOWER YOGA TO DELIVER STRETCH 4 VETS AROUND THE COUNTRY

 
EMBRACE PARTNERS WITH COREPOWER YOGA TO DELIVER STRETCH 4 VETS AROUND THE COUNTRY
Success from 2015 San Diego event leads to an agreement
 
 
 
 
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (March 29, 2016) – On Saturday, November 21, nonprofit organization Embrace, hosted its 1st ever Stretch 4 Vets event on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Midway through a partnership with CorePower Yoga.  Approximately 500 yogis from all over San Diego county, including active military, veterans and college students practiced yoga on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Midway and raised $17,000 to support Embrace’s Healing Our Heroes’ Homes program that remodels the homes of disabled veteran homeowners.
 
The 1st time event turnout, positive feedback from participants and the amount of funds raised led to discussions between CorePower Yoga and Embrace regarding how and when the two entities could work together again.
