To raise awareness about breast cancer on this pink month of October, Ms. Honey Mangubat, a certified member of Zumba Instructors Network (ZIN) and also a breast cancer survivor, organized a zumba party held in Rodelsa Circle.


Together with her are her fellow ZINs, Thrive CDO Breast Cancer Awareness Advocacy Group, and some generous sponsors. In spite of a rainy (rainshowers to be exact) sunday early morning, it was attended by nearly a hundred zumba / fitness enthusiast and ZINs from different towns and cities as far as Ozamis City.

participants and ZINs

i heard that many signed up and registered but since it was raining, some of them did not make it. also, the park (rodelsa circle) is a public park for many joggers and runners, they also joined the party.

what made me happy and a bit of emotional too, is that to see ms. Jannice Sanz again for almost 7 months. Jannice is one of my wife's classmate in both chemo and radiation therapies. im happy because seeing a fighter and a survivor is a message of hope and faith. emotional, well, i shared to her my bad news. Im happy to see her new hair. believe me, her beauty and her aura, positive aura, did not change. She also introduced me to the members of Thrive CDO Breast Cancer Awareness Advocacy Group. If i am not mistaken, the group is headed by ms. Karen Lluch.

The two (2) hour zumba party ended with new friends meet and some raffle prices from the sponsors. Also, they also gave out congeniality awards which made the party more enjoyable. everybody went home with smile and happiness in their hearts.

I would like to thank all who made this party possible. Thank you to all who participated. YES! let's continue to inspire the fighters, admire the survivors and honor the taken. Let us not give up our hope, faith and love.
