"We want this to be an uplifting event for those that come and those that are being helped through the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure organization."
Bellingham, Wash. (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Pacific Northwest Karate Center, a provider of martial arts and fitness training to include Zumba Fitness announces a special event to benefit the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure, a foundation that supports breast cancer research. The event will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2011 from 6-8 PM and will feature Zumba Fitness. Attendance is by donation.
Zumba Fitness is a Latin dance inspired fitness that is a lot of fun and has been very motivational for people who otherwise do not always enjoy working out. The Zumba slogan of “Join the Party” represents the idea that as the participants experience the party like activity of Latin dance they get a great workout without it feeling like work. The majority of participants tend to be women though men participate as well.
Pacific Northwest Karate Center owner, Shayne Simpson stated, “We will have child care provided for all participants and many local merchants have donated food and prizes for the event. We want this to be an uplifting event for those that come and those that are being helped through the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure organization.”
All proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, often spoken of as the 3-Day, is normally a 60-mile walk to raise money to fight breast cancer. The use of Zumba is a great alternative for those who may not be able to commit to a three-day event. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. Those who would like to support the cause, but are not able to attend can still make a donation to the cause.
Donations can be made at the event or by sending donations to: Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, P.O. Box 660843 Dallas, TX 75266-0843
