‘ZUMBA Me Pink’ raises funds for cancer programs

Salsa, samba, and party while raising money for breast cancer care at “ZUMBA Me Pink.” Local licensed ZUMBA instructors Evelyn Martinez, Jamie Clancey, and Kelly Rozwadowski are hosting the three  hour “ZUMBATHON” on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Germanna’s Daniel Technology Center, from 6 to 9 p.m. Proceeds will stay local, raising money for the Pamper Me Pink Mammogram Fund at Culpeper Regional Hospital, which provides mammograms to women in need and raises awareness through education of breast cancer causes, detection, and treatment. “ZUMBA Me Pink” is presented and sponsored by the Powell Wellness Center.

Tickets are $10 and everyone will be able to pay at the door. There is no pre-registration and 100 percent  of the proceeds will be dedicated to the Pamper Me Pink Mammogram Fund. There will be light refreshments available to participants and fantastic music that will keep the momentum going and provide a dance-inspired evening.

The first 50 participants to arrive will be entered into a drawing to win a fantastic prize. The first person to arrive with 10 friends will receive a special gift. Child care will be available at Powell Wellness Center from 6 to 9 p.m. Please call the Powell Wellness Center at 540-829-4741 for details.

Event organizers Leslie Maryk and Brandy White of the Powell Wellness Center are aiming for 200 or more “ZUMBA Me Pink” participants. No experience is required. All ages 10 and up are welcome, whether they have taken ZUMBA Fitness before or not. Everyone is welcome to come and have a great time. And wear pink! “We are encouraging fun and inspired ZUMBA Fitness outfits,” says White.  

“Participants will party, dance and leave feeling exhilarated by their endorphin rush as well as their thrill at having done their part for breast cancer care and education here in our local community,” added Maryk

ZUMBA Fitness is a sassy Latin-inspired dance fitness program which blends Latin and international music and rhythms to aerobic exercise to create a fun, party-like workout. A ZUMBATHON is an enhanced ZUMBA Fitness class which brings together instructors who specialize in various dance forms including Salsa, Samba, Reggaeton, Belly Dance, Bhangra, and more.

“ZUMBA Me Pink” is one of several fundraisers leading up to one of the most anticipated annual community events, “Pamper Me Pink,” taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Germanna’s Daniel Technology Center. The theme for the event is always cancer awareness, education, and empowerment. This unique evening of enlightenment, indulgence, and inspiration will once again feature pampering stations, local physicians and cancer survivor speakers, and special presentations.
