This Zumba craze has made its mark on gyms and living rooms worldwide.

The dance-inspired cardio is a favorite calorie cruncher of hard-bodied celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jordin Sparks and Madonna. They all credit Zumba with being a fun way to sweat off the pounds.

Zumba Fitness is now hosting the ultimate give back party during October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s their annual charity campaign “Party in Pink”, which raises money for the Susan G Komen foundation to fight breast cancer. The “Party in Pink” movement started up last year and to date has raised more than $1.2 million through 1,300-plus worldwide Zumbathon charity events. Love it!

Zumba Fitness’ annual “Party in Pink” campaign runs through October 31.
