Zumbathon helps fight cancer


A “Party in Pink,” to raise funds for cancer prevention research, is being put on by Zumba dance instructor Karina Feigner and the Central Oregon Zumba Instructors Network.

Twelve zumba instructors from around Central Oregon will conduct the Zumbathon event from 6-8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 11, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, 341 S.W. J St., in Madras, and everyone is invited. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and there will also be a silent auction.

The cost is $10 per person at the door, or advanced tickets for $7 can be preordered at studiokmadras.com.

All funds raised will go to the new Zumba global research grant for breast cancer prevention, which is in partnership with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
