DENVER (CBS4) – Hundreds of people started their Sunday with a little yoga at Cheesman Park.

“Yoga On The Steps” raised money to help those affected by breast cancer. A group called Living Beyond Breast Cancer organized the event. They started the event in Philadelphia more than a decade ago. Now it’s spreading nationwide.

“We’ve done some educational programs here; we have some good ties with some doctors in the area. But there clearly is a strong following and interest in doing yoga so it made a lot of sense,” Living Beyond Breast Cancer CEO Jean Sachs said.

Organizers hoped to raise $70,000 with the yoga fundraiser.
