The whole world has been colored pink to celebrate the breast cancer awareness month. In the spirit of the celebration, the Yarkosky & Co. Dance Production of Zumba recently organized an event called "pink".
About 30 participants took part in the event and raised an amount about $250.00 dollars. Every year the Zumba organizes a number of events to support the breast cancer research. In 2010, the organizers through its event were able to raise an amount of $3,000 which was directed towards New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation (NZBCF).
The organizer, with the pursuit of raising more fund, are holding yet another event called "Bare Your Bra for Breast Cancer". It has been informed that the event will take place at the Lion Foundation Arena of Edgar Centre.
For participating in the event, people will be required to make a donation of minimum $5. The event is due to be held on October 30. It will last for just one hour, by beginning at 3:00 pm and ending at 4:00 pm.
The event is being organized to raise funds for breast cancer research and to encourage women to understand the early symptoms of breast cancer. As per the event, the participants will be seen wearing fancy bras on their T-shirts or by using it as their belt. These fancy bras will be decorated by the participants alone.
The best decorated bra will be awarded by the organizers. Besides, this weekend public will also witness certain events which will be organized on public demand. These events will include Fitness performance and promotional tours.
Breast cancer is a lethal disease which can be terminal if not diagnosed timely. However, unfortunately women are not accurately aware of the diseases because of which they miss the early symptoms of breast cancer.
