Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest in Singapore, March 10th

Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest in Singapore, March 10th

Thank you, thank you, to all of the amazing Zumba enthusiasts who danced their hearts out at the FIRST Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest on March 10th in Singapore!!


Your energy, enthusiasm, professionalism, passion, and support were integral to the outstanding success of our Zumbathon Charity Event in support of ALS.  I cannot tell you enough how honored and privileged I was to be a part of such an incredible team of Zumba Instructors, include Yannick, Zumba Jammer from Australia.  It was truly a pleasure to meet, dance and shake it with each of you and I am so looking forward to seeing you all again soon!  I enjoyed chatting with you at the meet and greet and dancing with you at the roof top party!  I am still smiling from the pure electricity from the event!

We did have the most massive turn-out we have ever seen in a Zumba event in Singapore and we have donated a phenomenal amount over SGD5500 to the charity of Augies Quest. We are so proud of what we all achieved, and it was not to benefit our bank accounts, but really to shine the light to the cause.

Monica and Airin – sensational organizing of such a smooth, successful and well executed event!  Thank you for gathering such a dynamic, passionate team of ZINs together for such a meaningful cause.
And many thanks to the incredible Kurt, Eddy, sound team and everyone else who made this event so memorable!
The United We Dance event will go down in Singapore Zumba memory as one of the most heartfelt and memorable moments of the culture’s history!
Wishing you the best of health and happiness!

Encouraging breast cancer survivors to get moving

Vicky Hallett, Washington Post, Thursday, September 23, 2010

Last October, Tracey McKee’s experience with Breast Cancer Awareness Month was personal: She learned she had Stage 3 of the disease. After undergoing a modified radical mastectomy, the 39-year-old was quickly cancer-free. But she was left with a tightness around her chest that felt like she was wearing a shrunken sports bra, arms that refused to lift above her head and general exhaustion.
