All funds raised during the Party in Pink™ campaign will go to the new Zumba® Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention. That means 75% of ticket fees raised from Party in Pink™ Zumbathon® charity events all over the world go directly toward research to prevent breast cancer. This grant is managed by Susan G. Komen®. There are absolutely no administration fees from Zumba or Komen.
Komen’s global expertise in research and funded grant programs and peer review process is unmatched in the industry, and now they’re leveraging their flawless research process to ensure the highest quality research team and fund management for this trailblazing medical research grant.
Four years ago Zumba launched the Party in Pink™ charity campaign in the fight against breast cancer. Since then, together with Zumba® Instructors and fans, we’ve raised over US$4 million worldwide. Last year we decided to take it to the next level and work towards preventing breast cancer before it starts with the Zumba® Global Research Grant for Breast Cancer Prevention. This year we’ve pledged to do it again!
This unique and innovative grant studies the effects of flaxseed consumption on pre-menopausal women as a safe, low-cost, highly accessible solution to help prevent breast cancer on a global scale. Led by an interdisciplinary team of renowned scientists at two top research institutions – The University of Kansas Medical Center and The University of Texas at Austin – this groundbreaking research includes cutting-edge, pre-clinical studies and a multi-center clinical trial in the prevention of breast cancer.Learn More
Together, through the Party in Pink™ campaign, Zumba and our network of passionate instructors and fans can help fund this leading-edge research with the ultimate goal of reaching US$1 million in 2014, and helping to stop breast cancer before it starts. This year’s Party in Pink™ campaign will be more powerful than ever – it’s more than an evolution, it’s a movement!
It’s time to make moves in the fight against breast cancer! Let’s exercise our right to unite as a Zumba® community worldwide for the first ever medical research grant exclusively representing Zumba. Come rock out with friends for a good cause while you help raise funds for global research that could ultimately save millions of lives around the world.
