FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Northridge—The Student Recreation Center at the University Student Union is inviting all CSUN students, faculty, staff and community members to join together to help take a step towards a cure for breast cancer at the fourth annual Zumbathon® in the Red Rings Court at the SRC on Wednesday, Oct. 29 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., doors open at 4:30 p.m. The event is dedicated to supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month and providing a positive, healthy way to support the fight against breast cancer.
“We are looking forward to a large turnout for Zumbathon® this year,” said Amanda Christianson, SRC fitness coordinator. “It’s a fun, calorie-burning dance marathon and all proceeds from ticket sales will go to Susan G. Komen® for the Cure Foundation.”
Participants will dance to the beat of high energy music for almost two hours while learning fun and entertaining Zumba® moves and listen to breast cancer survivors share their stories. Tickets can be purchased now at the Associated Students Ticket office for only $10 and through ticketmaster.com
Last year, nearly 300 people filled the Matadome in memory of Mary Jane Smith-Walden, a former CSUN Kinesiology Instructor and CSUN Hall of Fame Volleyball player. Smith-Walden passed away almost three years ago after battling breast cancer.
A large and exciting crowd is expected again for this year’s engaging Zumbathon® event. All participants are highly encouraged to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and join the cause through social media at #STEPTOWARDSACURE.
