Results Health and Fitness Center invites all Zumba and exercise enthusiasts, children, teens and adults to put on their dancing shoes and join us as we take Shakira’s challenge to dance the World Cup’s “Waka Waka” song in support of 1GOAL, a global education campaign. The event will take place on Saturday June, 26, 2010 at 2:30 pm at San Tan Junior High School. Watch Results Health and Fitness staff prepare and practice choreography of the “Waka Waka”.

Grammy award winning musical artist and 1GOAL Ambassador Shakira last month issued a YouTube challenge to 1song, 1 dance, 1GOAL advocates and World Cup athletes and fans. “Can you do the Waka Waka?” She requested everyone to record their dance and post it as the sign of support to help all children attend school and get the education they deserve.

“Who do I see as the team reigning victorious of the World Cup?” Tammi Jacobs, Executive Director of Results Health and Fitness responds to our question, “The children will be the winners of the World Cup. You see the World Cup has astonishing power of both unparalleled exhilaration and the power to unite. We must use this moment to raise our voices for 1GOAL: to ensure all children have access to primary education.”

1GOAL is a global campaign that seeks to rally 2010 FIFA World Cup athletes and fans worldwide to ensure 72 million out of school children are given the right to education.
