A little less than a week ago I got to be a part of a very special Zumba event. Allison, one of the local Zumba Fitness instructors had put together a “Party In Pink” to raise funds for the Susan B. Komen for the Cure Foundation. It was a great night with more than 80 people grooving out to help wipe out breast cancer.
It was a special night in many ways. #1 – we were all dancing for a GREAT cause. Breast cancer has touched sooo many people’s lives. Mine too. Me, I had brought along Sue, my Best Woman from our wedding and herself a survivor. We danced and danced and got a little funky in honor of the survivors in our lives and in memory of those who were not there to party with us.
I thought of the various women I knew who had fought and won…Sue… Evergreen… Selchie… And I thought about Midge who passed away this summer. I’m glad that Zumba has taken this on as something that they would like to make a difference in.
I’m glad to be able to take my passion and use it for something like this as often as I can.
