Oct. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- Get your heart pumpin’, spirit movin’ & hips groovin’ as you burn calories for this year's Party in Pink Zumbathon® charity event featuring guest Zumba® instructor Amia Freeman.  Join Freeman at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital’s Health Place 300 Kennestone Blvd Marietta on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for a 2-hour Zumba Class benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Follow Freeman's easy to learn moves and hypnotic Latin rhythms as you shed pounds wearing your favorite pink exercise attire! Members and non-members are welcome.

Breast cancer ranks second as a cause of cancer death in women. That is why Zumba enthusiasts across the nation are making a “move” to support breast cancer awareness.  Grab your friends for a Party in Pink , and don’t forget to wear your pink. 75% of ticket sales for the event are donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

"Our bodies were made to move! Zumba fitness is a celebration of that movement." says licensed Zumba fitness instructor Amia Freeman "Music has an ability to take you where you want to go but don't know how to get there. It has a hypnotic, mystery in every rhythm, drum beat and word."

Zumba fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away. The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Ditch the workout, join the party…Zumba!

As an fitness instructor Freeman allows the music to create an atmosphere of inspiration, empowerment and an uplifting of the spirit.  She is known for telling everyone to "KEEP MOVIN', encouraging her class to let the music move you & interpret what the song means to YOU individually based on your inner interpretation & translation.

Party in Pink is about the social connection, the celebration & the movement of life! Every one of Freeman's Zumba fitness classes gives you the opportunity to translate through movement.  

Inspired by the stories of countless breast cancer survivors who relied on their Zumba Fitness classes for physical and emotional support during their fight against the disease, Zumba Fitness today announced there are 600 Party in Pink™ Zumba Fitness classes scheduled in 47 states to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which promises to raise tens of thousands of dollars for breast cancer awareness and research.

Through National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Zumba Fitness is enlisting its thousands of U.S. instructors to host Zumbathon® charity events throughout the country to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. With more Party in Pink Zumba classes being added to the schedule daily, at least 75 percent of the sales from each ticket will be donated to the organization.

A $15 ticket purchase for the event is requested per attendee, which is your donation benefitting the Foundation.
