Komen® by hosting Zumba® classes for a cause, known as Zumbathon® events.
Inspired by breast cancer survivors who relied on their Zumba® classes for physical and emotional support during their fight against the disease, Zumba® launched Party in Pink™ in 2010.Party in Pink™ offers the opportunity for licensed Zumba® instructors to raise funds and awareness to help end breast cancer by hosting a Zumbathon® benefiting Susan G. Komen. Since the inception of the program, Zumba® has raised more than $4.5 million through more than 1,500 Party in Pink™ Zumbathon® events hosted around the globe each year. In 2013, Susan G. Komen announced the extension of its partnership with Zumba®. From July 15, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2017, Zumba® will fund a five-year, $3 million dollar Susan G.

The Zumba® Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention is focused on evaluating SDG, a component of flaxseeds, for the prevention of breast cancer. Evidence shows that SDG blocks the estrogen receptors on cells within breast tissue, starving them of full-strength estrogen, preventing cell damage and possibly stopping tumor growth. This outcome would be most effective in younger, premenopausal women and is particularly exciting for areas across the globe where women are less likely to have access to state-of-the-art screening and treatment facilities.For more information on this Promise Grant and to attend a Party in Pink™ Zumbathon® charity event, visit PartyinPink.com.
