About the Festival

Above + Beyond Cancer invites you to join us for the Elevate Festival at Water Works Park on Sunday, October 11. 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 2020 Above + Beyond Cancer Elevate Festival:

5K walk/run

This non-competitive, 5K component will lead off the day with a “time trial” start to assure social distancing. Runners will maintain their 6 foot distance on the lawn near the Water Works Amphitheater, then start their run one at a time. We will have a live band playing to create some good vibes and to help motivate the participants.

Yoga

Last year’s Yoga session served as both an introduction to this concept for some and a welcomed relaxation experience for others. We will again use the lawn at the Amphitheater, asking folks to social distance and wear masks if they choose.

Meditation

At Above + Beyond Cancer we strongly believe in the power of this life altering, ancient practice. We have modified this component slightly form last year’s event to deliver a 15-20 minute experience.

The Music

We will again have music at this year’s Elevate Festival. Our plan is for a live band to play on the Water Works Amphitheater Stage throughout the 5K, then come back to close out the festival.
