Good Afternoon TUSDM!
For the third year in a row TUSDM faculty, staff, and students will have a team called the TUSDM Yogis at the upcoming Vinyasa with a View event. As a team we are tasked with raising 5,000 for the American Cancer Society. To help us reach that goal we are partnering with Blaze Pizza. Blaze Pizza (123 Stuart St. Boston) will donate 20% of their proceeds to the TUSDM Yogis fundraising efforts. Please join us tonight at Blaze Pizza and don’t forget to show the attached flier.
Where: Blaze Pizza at City Place – 123 Stuart St. Boston, MA

For the past three years Dr. Christina Pastan, Director of Mind and Body Wellness, and Katie Dunn, Assistant Director of Predoctoral Research, have been volunteering their time to organize and participate in a yoga event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Katie has been volunteering with the American Cancer Society and is on the committee that plans the yoga event, Vinyasa with a View at 9OFS a rooftop garden in the heart of Boston. The event takes place on Tuesday, September 25th at 5pm. Tufts will be well represented at this fundraiser with a team of TUSDM Yogis, appropriately named as such. The past team of students faculty and staff have had wonderful experiences participating in this event. For two years we were the second highest fundraising team as well as last year, D’20 Christoper Lucido was the highest fund raiser for the event.
I wanted to take this time to invite you to share in supporting this important cause, participate or make a tax deductible donation to the American Cancer Society and you can click on the link below to do so:
