'Party in Pink Zumbathon' raises cancer funds
Guam - Hoping to save lives and end breast cancer, more than 100 people came out for Sunday's "Party in Pink Zumbathon' charity event. A special candlelight vigil was held remembering those who have battled breast cancer and recognizing survivors. It was followed by participants shaking things up with the ever-popular Zumba form of exercise.
Organizer Jocelynn Camacho says it's a great way to be active, telling KUAM News, "You can come out and get healthy by joining Zumba. I used to be 269 lbs and I lost 114 lbs total just on Zumba. If I can do it, you can do it. Just come out and try I promise you're going to love it."
75% of the ticket fee will go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation and its global non-profit partners to fund breast cancer research. Camacho says they were able to raise close to a thousand dollars and it's something she hopes to make an annual event.
