The dance workout craze Zumba is hoping you'll get moving this October - to help end breast cancer forever.
Local Zumba instructors hope this beat will get you on your feet this fall. They're hosting the first ever "Party in Pink" Zumbathon charity event as part of a new partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
It'll be an afternoon of Zumba demonstrations and performances with a cause in mind. And local zumba expert, Pam Calhoun says it's for the whole family.
"Zumba is for everyone and there's a different format – if you can't do one you can find one that's suitable for your needs. It's just a great, great comradery and you encourage one another and it's just a lot of fun!" says Calhoun.
Even if you've never tried Zumba before, Pam says this is a great chance to check it out – you don't have to be a professional dancer.
Here are the details:
When: Saturday, October 6th from 2-4pm
Where: Bronson Elementary School, Bronson, IA
There's a free will donation to get in and the money goes to breast cancer education and screening here locally, as well as national research.
There's another "Party in Pink" this October in Sioux City. That's October 21st from 2-7pm at OZZ Fitness, 1414 Nebraska St. Zumba will take place at 2:30, 3:30 and 4:30. $10 at the door. Plus music, food and much more. For more information call (712) 301-0097.
