This coming Saturday October 6 there is an opportunity for locals to get fit, have fun – and help raise money for breast cancer.

‘Party In Pink’ is a global campaign by that involves wearing a pink outfit and attending a special Party in Pink Zumba class where 75 per cent of the entry fee is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

On Saturday there will be events happening all over Australia including one at Casuarina Rec Club, at Barclay Drive Kingscliff at 4–5pm. Entry is $15.

It is being conducted by local Zumba instructor Belen Kimble-Fuller. Belen’s two aunts have had breast cancer. Many of her friends and a few of her Zumba students are currently going through treatment, so it is a cause close to her heart.

People can also purchase pink Zumba apparel with 30 per cent donated to National Breast Cancer Foundation through zumba.com.
