Where: 1694 Union St

A month ago our dear friend Larena was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. She has already undergone one major surgery and her first round of chemo - all while in Japan, far away from home. For those who don’t know Larena, she is a dear friend of The Pad Studios and general bringer of joy. Larena believes that the world if full of wonder - she spent seven years as a clown with Ringling Barnum & Bailey Circus, spreading joy to children around the world. She is now a part of the Kinoshita Circus in Japan - continuing her lifelong mission to make people laugh. Even now, recovering from her first round of chemo, Larena is looking forward to getting back to work with the circus - exploring new places and bringing light wherever she goes. In short, she is tireless in her quest to spread happiness. 

And now we have a chance to spread the love right back. Join Gillian for a special benefit class on Tuesday, July 18. There will be snacks, drinks, music, and more. All proceeds from the evening go to helping Larena pay for her medical bills, and continue receiving the best treatment she can. Cancer sucks - let’s kick its butt one chaturanga at a time.
