Yoga Warriors Free Annual Event Set for April 14

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Press release) — Donna Terrell's Yoga Warriors Fighting Colon Cancer event is gearing up for its fifth year. Philanthropist and yoga instructor Natalie Rockefeller with Big Rock Yoga will lead this year’s class.
 
The community event was started by Fox 16 anchor Donna Terrell in honor of her late daughter Queah, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 2011. Queah was only 27 when she was diagnosed. Two years after her daughter’s death, Terrell began her mission to use her own experience to promote cancer awareness and advocate on behalf of the health benefits yoga provides for oncology patients and their families.

“I saw how practicing yoga helped Queah feel better during her treatment and it made me realize how impactful yoga can be while battling a serious illness,” said Terrell. “My hope is to raise awareness about the benefits of yoga during cancer treatment and recovery during this annual while also supporting those in our community fighting the disease.” 

Since its inception, Donna Terrell’s Yoga Warriors Fighting Colon Cancer named CARTI as the event’s beneficiary with proceeds designated to provide liquid nutritional supplements for its cancer patients and most recently, yoga classes at the treatment facility for patients and caregivers. 

Admission to the event is free and participants are asked to bring their own yoga mats. Donations will be accepted and proceeds will benefit CARTI.

This year’s Yoga Warriors event is set for 10 a.m., Saturday, April 14 at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Little Rock.
