Zumba Fitness Instructors Lead "Party in Pink" Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research

CHESTERTOWN—A "Party in Pink" Zumbathon Fundraiser will raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation Saturday, October 9 in Cain Gym on the Washington College campus in Chestertown. Styled like an open house, the event welcomes participants to drop in and exercise whenever they can between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in exchange for a $10 donation (cash or check made out to Susan G. Komen for the Cure).

More than 10 Zumba fitness instructors from the Delmarva area will lead the dances, which boost aerobic and strength fitness through dance movements set to a fun Latin beat. No experience is necessary. Participants should wear comfortable workout clothes—pink if possible—and aerobics shoes or non-marking sneakers.

All ages are encouraged to attend, and spectators are welcome.

The event is sponsored by the Washington College Office of Campus Recreation. For information, call Aundra Weissert at 443-480-5603 or visit the event Facebook page.
