Dear Zumba Friends,
Some of you know me, Therese, and you know that it has always been my passion to make fitness accessible and affordable; however, there is a bigger picture. Recently my mom, who you all know and love was diagnosed with leukemia. As her leukemia has a great prognosis it is still a hard journey. My mom Cheryl being the wonderful woman she is looks at this as an opportunity to do something good. She is asking that you all make a goal for yourselves and unite together; not only for leukemia awareness, but, for healthy lifestyle changes as well. She is challenging all of you to go beyond what you think your'e capable of and try out a Team in Training event. (Team in Training donates millions of dollars to leukemia and lymphoma research)
http://www.teamintraining.org/ Where her prognosis would not be as positive without all of their research. She is already planning to do AT LEAST a half marathon after her fight against leukemia. So I challenge you now to get ready to toe the starting line right next to the strongest woman I know.
