Power of Pink

Whoever said pink is for sissies?  Not at Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym! On Sat., October 17 a sea of pink-clad ladies jumped and danced in the sun like Energizer Bunnies at the gym’s Third Annual Party in Pink Zumbathon and Blood Drive, an event that raises money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awarenss campaign and for breast cancer research at the City of Hope.

Several of Shirlee’s talented and energetic Zumba instructors took turns leading the enthusiastic crowd:

  • Martha Keates
  • Tracy Cruz
  • Becky Frost
  • Bre Yakemonis
  • Marisol Baez
  • Sandra Torres

Funds raised from a $15 entrance fee went to Susan B. Komen and funds from $10 raffle ticket sales went to City of Hope.  The combined total was $3,000.

“I am so proud of our members for coming out to support our Party in Pink!” said gym owner Konnie Vong. “Our power is in our connection with each other. And as a team we raised a significant amount of money.”

In addition to raising money, the event also collected blood for City of Hope.  A mobile van collected donations from 30 people.

The Zumbathon/Blood Drive event included vendors offering special discounts and a taco truck with fantastic food.  Shirlee’s partnered with many local businesses to provide raffle prizes.

Christy Passoth, the winner of 2012 Beauties of America 60, spoke about how important it is for women to advocate for their own health and not put off breast cancer screenings.
