Zumbathoners and Donors Make 7th Annual TIPZumbathon® Another Success
InterContinental at Doral Miami, once again, opened its doors to support and benefit Susan G. Komen® Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. The Together in Pink Zumbathon® campaign culminated on October 28 with hundreds of Zumbathoners dancing to the beats of DJ Gringo and were surprised by a special guest appearance by Armando y Heidy.
To kick off the Zumbathon®, donors presented over $25,000.00 to Susan G. Komen® Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. Once the reconciliation of all the monies raised is completed, the Foundation will be presented with a check of all the donations received through the various events held leading up to the October 28 event.
The hotel and Zumba® leaders agree, that despite storms such as Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, that did not stop the community from rallying behind the cause and support the InterContinental at Doral Miami Together In Pink Zumbathon®. The donations from this year’s campaign are working twice as hard, as Susan G. Komen® Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, through its partners, is helping breast cancer patients and survivors who have also felt the impacts of the storms.
“We could not have done it without the support of the Zumba® Fitness instructors and the donors: MEC Fitness, PSAV, Brown & Brown, Palmetto General Hospital, Westland Mall, Downtown Doral, Befree Media, Sysco, Skin Fitness, the M.A.R.C., BrightView, Miami International Mall, Minuteman Press of Miami, Select Services International, Y. Soler, Social Miami, Sir Speedy of Miami Lakes, and of course the participants who purchased tickets or made donations,” said Randal Pasut, General Manager of InterContinental at Doral Miami.
For the past 6 years, the Doral hotel has hosted a Zumbathon® where hundreds of Zumba® enthusiasts dance for 90 minutes with the sole purpose of raising funds and awareness and to find a cure for breast cancer. The monies raised will be put towards local hospitals and community organizations that serve Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties as well as fund ground breaking breast cancer research.
