Zumba for the cure

Tickets are $25 at the door or $20 if you pre-register

Jessica Wittman leads a Zumba Fitness session at the Lighthouse community hall in August.

When someone you care about has been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is difficult to know what to say or do to help.

This Friday, Oct. 19, you can choose to put your energy into something positive and empowering with Zumba-for-the-Cure.

The second annual event happens at Nanoose Place. New to Zumba? Learn all the moves from 6-7 p.m. Friday, and from 7-9 p.m. everyone will be shaking-it-up and raising money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Zumba is a fun, Latin-inspired, fierce and feminine dance fitness program, and the menfolk are always welcome.

The event will be led by Zumba and fitness instructor Anna K. Dodds, along with her dedicated crew from Zumba Oceanside Fitness.

Tickets are $25 at the door or $20 if you pre-register. Visit www.zumbaoceanside.com and check under workshops and events.
