CANCER Research ZumbaFunFit Fund Raiser September 9th, 2015

ZumbaFunFit's Fall 2015 session opened with a special fund-raiser to support cancer research.

ZumbaFunFit's Fall Cancer Fund Raiser was held September 9th at 7 pm in the Upper Hall of the Carleton Place Arena.

New Goal

This year I was touched by the story in our local area about Jillian who is a young woman and neighbour with incurable breast cancer. So I thought I would like to allocate our fund raiser this year in a very specific way. After talking to Jillian's family the Biopsy Gun for the Ottawa Breast Health Centre was selected. The funds raised in our Zumba class on Sept. 9th will be donated to purchase this equipment.

Our GOAL : Breast Biopsy Gun- $1000

I encourage you to read on about the background to Jillian.

Excerpt from Article - Ottawa Citizen. Published on: August 14, 2015

When Jillian O’Connor peers into the future she sees possibilities: days of laughter and play with her three young children, family trips, holiday memories.

A year after being diagnosed with incurable breast cancer while pregnant, O’Connor says she is too busy living each day with her children — including six-month-old Declan, born after his mother underwent chemotherapy — to think about cancer.

“This is what we do all day,” she says with a laugh, “hang out and play with toys.”

Her optimism in the face of a devastating diagnosis has touched many people who have sent her well wishes and offers of help.

Breast Biopsy Gun

Similar to a needle, but larger in size and more complex than a syringe, a biopsy Gun is used to remove breast tissue samples. The Ottawa Breast Health Centre needs 10 Biopsy Guns.

Cheques in envelopes are payable to "The Ottawa Hospital Foundation". Upon request receipts will be issued for any donation over $15.00.

Twelve Week ZumbaFunFit Challenge

January 19th to April 5th , 2015


This is a long, cold winter. But, before we know we’ll be breaking out the shorts and capris for summer. So join me as I prepare for summer. You’ve heard me talk about it in class so here is the official introduction of our Twelve Weeks Challenge. This year we are doing a twelve week program rather than 8 weeks we did in previous years..

The Free Challenge is a group open to all ZumbaFunFit participants who want to set a goal, conquer it, and win ZumbaFunFit Rewards for it!

Whether your goal is weight loss or simply improving your overall health, join this group for free and reap the benefits of a social Zumba support network, along with motivational messages, and tips of the week. Most us need a little boost to get over the winter blahs. Now you can do it with your buddies at ZumbaFunFit and have their support along the way.

Throughout the program points are awarded based on the number of Zumba classes you attend, and any other cardiovascular or weight training fitness activities you participate in on your own. Top winners from several categories will be based on total points accumulated.

There will also be random draws for Zumba prizes from the participant pool throughout the challenge.

You will find a full explanation about the point system and other details in our Challenge Guide.

If you choose to become a participant of the Twelve Weeks Challenge then here is how you begin:

1. Email me to tell me you’re participating. If you prefer you can sign up in class.

2. Set a goal for the whole period - let me know if you wish we will keep it private!

3. Weigh and/or, take measurements (for yourself only) - optional, and take a before photo if you dare!

4. Start recording your points as you go along (we will send the GUIDE only to those who sign up). Send your points each week to me via email. If you do not have email then give them to me or Tom each Monday or Wednesday class for the previous week.

Check in on Facebook to connect with other ZumbaAddicts (our official Facebook page is on the ZumbaFunFit website link). You have to Choose LIKE to join ZumbaFunFit Facebook page.

I hope you’re all as excited as I am to tackle the next twelve weeks! I have my fitness and weight loss goals set, have you?
