Donor Spotlight - Alex Schueler

"The impact that COVID-19 is having on the healthcare community in New York is profound, and we couldn’t just sit back and hear about it. We decided to activate Schuyoga for a Cause to support the Montefiore community while also helping people stay physically active and connected while they are at home." - Alex Schueler

Thanks to Alex Schueler of Schuyoga, you can now support Montefiore’s frontline workers while finding zen on Sunday mornings. Motivated by a desire to do her part in caring for our community, Alex teamed up with the Montefiore and Einstein Office of Development to develop a donation-based "Virtual Vinyasa" series. The class, which launched on March 29 via the Zoom video platform, brought together inspired participants from around the country to lift up our community—and our spirits.

Within the fundraising effort’s first 48 hours, Virtual Vinyasa raised over $1,400 through class registrations. All funds directly benefit COVID-19 relief efforts at Montefiore, including providing life-saving resources for patients, personal protective equipment for healthcare teams, and more. Response to the first class was so great that Virtual Vinyasa has become a weekly class on Sundays at 11:00am EST.
