WWE, Susan G. Komen and Manduka, the world’s most respected brand in yoga, teamed for a project:OM yoga event with E! News host Maria Menounos and 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Diamond Dallas Page at Full Sail Live at Full Sail University in Winter Park, near Orlando.
WWE Ambassador Dana Warrior and WWE Superstars Titus O’Neil and Natalya also participated on Saturday, April 1 (no fooling) to lead more than 150 WrestleMania super fans in a project:OM yoga class in support of project:OM.
Project:OM is a partnership between Susan G. Komen and Manduka to bring together 1-million yoga participants during Mother’s Day Weekend to promote health and wellness and raise millions of dollars in support of Susan G. Komen’s Bold Goal of reducing breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the United States by 2026. One hundred percent of all donations go to support breast cancer research and community programs across the country.
At the Full Sail Live event, WrestleMania super fans, yogis and Orlando citizens impacted by breast cancer participated in the event. Diamond Dallas Page led his trademark DDP yoga program in a challenging yet beginner-focused class open to all.
Never miss a local story.
Officially launched project:OM’s “M Challenge,” a social challenge to encourage participation and help spread the word about project:OM.
The “M Challenge” encourages people to grab a friend and do two downward dogs to create an “M” and then post on social media with #projectOM while tagging friends and inviting them to take the challenge.
