For the fourth year running, Inspired Women of Worth (iWOW) invites you to its annual Breast Cancer Awareness event which is focused on raising awareness and saving lives. Due to popular demand, the ZUMBATHON will take place on Saturday November 15, 2014 at the balcony of the New Oriental Hotel, Lagos. Awareness leads to early detection which can save lives and that is why iWOW chose the Zumbathon to depict Life, Fun and Energy.
It is also about Hope, Knowledge and Possibilities and iWOW wants everyone to have fun doing it. With knowledge comes power, strength and confidence to make good decisions about health and life.
In addition, iWOW aim to raise healthy lifestyle awareness through the Zumbathon. It is well known that physical activity plays an important role in balancing your hormone levels, so it can directly reduce breast cancer risk. There will be a battle of the Zumbathons which promises to be an exciting part of the event.
This year, discounted Mammograms will also be available as part of the offering for attendees.
In line with Breast Cancer Awareness, healthy refreshments will be served. Each ticket purchased will be entered into a raffle draw for lots of great prizes.
Celebrities that have attended either iWOW Charity Balls or Zumbathon events have included Genevieve Nnaji, Onyeka Onwenu, Faze, Rita Dominic, Ego Boyo, Frank Edoho, Betty Irabor, Naeto C, Julius Agu, MI, Weird MC, Wana Wana just to mention a few. We expect several celebrities to turn out again this year in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and there will be a surprise guest performance.
