Genesys Athletic Club hosts fundraiser for cancer patients: Event features Zumba and Ripped workouts

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Athletic Club (GAC) will host Shakin' it for a Cause - a fundraiser to benefit Genesys cancer patients. The event, open to the entire community - will take place Friday, April 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at GAC. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
The evening includes a 45-minute Zumba class featuring some of the top Zumba instructors in the area, a 45-minute Ripped class, door prizes, raffles, refreshments, official Zumba-wear and Ripped wear to purchase, and much more. (Ripped - a high energy workout that combines resistance, intervals, power, plyometrics and endurance - is designed to help exercisers lose pounds and inches, increase their metabolism, sculpt lean muscles, improve cardiovascular performance, and feel energy and strength go to levels not experienced before.)

A portion of the proceeds from Shakin' it for a Cause will go to Reunion with a Cause, an annual walk held at Holly High School to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to celebrate cancer survivors.
Sponsored by Genesys Health Foundation, this event includes music, entertainment, food, and a candle lighting ceremony.

Funds raised from Reunion with a Cause are used to help Genesys cancer patients pay for medications, medical equipment, rental equipment such as wheelchairs, private pay aides, transportation to and from cancer treatments, and other special needs not covered by health insurance. Last year over $80,000 was raised. This year's Reunion with a Cause will take place Friday, Aug. 12 at Holly High School. The public is welcome and encouraged to participate.

To register for Shakin' it for a Cause, call Genesys Athletic Club at 810-606-7300. Cost is $30 for early registration (early registration ends April 15), and $35 after April 15 and at the door. Last year's Shakin' it event raised $3,000 for Genesys cancer patients.

For more information on Reunion with a Cause, call Genesys Health Foundation at 810-606-6020.
