Lauridsen Amphitheater at Waterworks Park

10:00 am – 1:30 pm

About the Festival

Above + Beyond Cancer invites you to join us for the Elevate Festival at Water Works Park on Sunday, October 10. Applying social distancing concepts, about which we have all become familiar, for all three components of the event – 5K, Yoga, and Meditation, all targeted at helping cancer survivors and caregivers lead a mind, body, and spirit approach to life with, or without cancer.

Here are the components of our 2021 Above + Beyond Cancer Elevate Festival:

5K walk/run

This non-competitive, 5K component will lead off the day. The course stays on the tree-lined closed road through Water Works Parks, starting and finishing at the Lauridsen Amphitheater. We will have a live band (The Sheet) playing to create some good vibes and to help motivate the participants.


We will again use the lawn at the Amphitheater for our Yoga session, which will again be led by Des Moines’ favorite yogi, Ben “Good Vibes” Spellman.


At Above + Beyond Cancer we strongly believe in the power of this life-altering, ancient practice. If you have never be exposed to Meditation, we are sure you will fall in love.

The Music

We will again have music from The Sheet at this year’s Elevate Festival. Our plan is for them to play on the Lauridsen Amphitheater Stage throughout the 5K, then come back to close out the festival.
