Dancing for pink cause

LOCALS got into the zumba groove while painting the town pink last month for a very worthy cause.

With around 150 members in attendance, Livefit's second Pink Zumba Marathon has been hailed a huge success, raising more than $700 for the Griffith Breast Cancer Support Group.

Griffith Breast Cancer Support Group committee member Margaret Moore said they were overwhelmed by the support shown.

"It was absolutely amazing that so many people wanted to do this for us," she said.

"We are extremely grateful to everyone who took part. Events like this not only raise money to help locals but they help raise our profile and awareness that we are here to help.

Livefit's Matthew Kenny said he was happy to help raise awareness and funds.

"So many people have been touched by breast cancer," he said.

"We have had two members who had their breasts removed this year so we know how important this cause is.

"It was a dance party where everyone had a lot of fun and at the end of the day we were able to raise money for a worthwhile charity.
