The 4th annual “Party in Pink” Zumbathon Charity Event will be held 8 a.m to 9:30 a.m. this Saturday, Oct. 12, at Giverny Fitness Studio in downtown Warsaw. Zumba and Hip Hop instructors from Giverny have put together an exciting evening of the latest club music, Latin-inspired rhythms and hot moves.
“Party in Pink” is part dancing, part fitness and all fun. Everyone is invited to wear pink and dance the night away under the pink lights in the loft studio.
Funds raised at the “Party in Pink” will go to the new Zumba Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention. The grant is the first ever medical research grant named for the Zumba program. The unique and innovative grant will study the effects of flaxseed consumption on pre-menopausal women as a safe, low-cost, highly accessible solution to help prevent breast cancer on a global scale. Through the “Party in Pink” campaign, Zumba Fitness and its network of passionate instructors and fans can help fund this leading-edge research with the goal of reaching $1 million in 2013, and the ultimate goal of helping to prevent breast cancer worldwide.
Special bracelets supporting the Cancer Care Fund of Kosciusko County will also be on sale at the event. The colorful beaded bracelets represent each type of cancer. Bracelets are $20, and the full purchase price will go directly into the local Cancer Care Fund.
Tickets for the Party in Pink are $10 and can be purchased at Giverny Fitness Studio at 207 S. Buffalo St in downtown Warsaw. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.GivernyFitness.com or at the door. Call 574-376-4051 for more information.
