Most of us have somebody in our lives who has been affected by breast cancer – whether it’s your mom, sister, best friend, next-door neighbor, or high school teacher, it’s a disease that has become far too common. While we should celebrate and honor our loved ones each and every day, the month of October is the time to shed light and raise awareness about breast cancer.
Zumba Fitness has the distinct honor of being the first brand to have a medical research grant named after them. The Zumba® Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention aims to conduct leading-edge research to prevent breast cancer before it starts, in partnership with Susan G. Komen. From August 1st to October 31st, Zumba encourages its inspirational community of instructors to host Party in Pink Zumbathon@ charity events, with proceeds from registration fees and select apparel going directly to Komen in support of the Zumba® Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention. It is our commitment to raise $3 million for this vital preventive research.
Want to get involved? Here’s how:
- Host or attend a Party in Pink Zumbathon® event locally by visiting partyinpink.com
- Purchase Party in Pink Zumba® apparel on Zumba.com. 30% of all sales will be donated to Susan G. Komen to help fund the grant and goal to work towards preventing and ending breast cancer
- Join the conversation! Share the Party in Pink Choreo video; upload your Party in Pink™ photos or what moves you to get involved and use the hashtag #MoveToGive
Visit Zumba® Stories to get to know some of the amazing breast cancer warriors in the Zumba community.
We’d like to encourage every one of you to check yourselves, get tested, and take all the necessary steps to prevent breast cancer before it starts. Together, we can make a change. #MoveToGive #Zumba
