Jazzercise raises funds for breast cancer survivors

By on April 24, 2010

Illinois—Jazzercise, the world’s leading dance fitness program, is proud to announce its partnership with Back in the Swing USA, a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to providing awareness, access and financial support for breast cancer survivorship programs and academic medical research in the field of breast cancer survivorship.

The organization’s goal is to empower breast cancer survivors to get back in the swing of life physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Area Jazzercise locations including Elburn, Sugar Grove, La Fox, Sycamore, Oswego, Sandwich, and Yorkville will participate in a special Back in the Swing fundraising class on May 1, during National Fitness and Sports Month, at the Sugar Grove location at John Shields Elementary School, 85 Main St.

A $20 donation will be requested to participate in this special 90-minute Jazzercise class taught by Illinois instructors Matt Giblin and Alan Kirkland. Breast Cancer survivors may attend the class for free. The night will include door prizes and raffles. All proceeds from Jazzercise/Back in the Swing fundraising classes will be donated to the Back in the Swing organization.

“We are proud to take part in this fundraising effort,” said Jazzercise Sugar Grove instructor Deb Cargola. “Together we will help breast cancer survivors get ‘back in the swing’ and ‘stay in the swing’ of joyful, healthy living after breast cancer.”

During the month of May, the above participating locations will offer unlimited Jazzercise classes to breast cancer survivors.

Jazzercise has raised more than $27 million for charitable organizations around the world. For more information, contact Deb Cargola at (630) 802-4801. For further information and worldwide class information, go to jazzercise.com or call (800) FIT-IS-IT.
