Inspired Women of Worth (IWOW) in partnership with FUZION Fitness Centre is organizing a “Safari Zumbathon’’ in support of Autism, Breast Cancer and Depression awareness (ABCD). IWOW in its 6th year continues to support awareness about these campaigns through its Zumbathon and this year we have partnered with FUZION fitness, Nigeria’s leading fitness centre to promote a healthy lifestyle through dance.
The Safari Zumbathon scheduled to hold on Saturday, October 1st, at the Grange School, Harold Shodipo Crescent, GRA, Ikeja from 7am – 11am depicts life and energy as it focuses on giving hope and saving lives. With this project, we increase awareness, dispel myths about breast cancer and de- stigmatize autism while creating hope for breast cancer victims and parents with children living with Autism.
This year, we will start a conversation and lift the veil on depression and mental wellness issues because we realize many people do not understand what depression really is and don’t know how to deal with it. Depression is a red flag that requires professional attention and needs to be addressed.
Over 500 people are expected to be at the venue and participants can look forward to energetic dance moves from Nigeria’s finest fitness instructors. Registration is now open. Please visit www.i-wow.org/zumbathon to secure your spot at the event and dance for a cause.
Stalls are also available for booking; Mobile testing centres, resource materials and other powerful speakers will be onsite to further educate participants on the myths surrounding these causes. Also real life stories will be shared by survivors and family members.
This event is proudly sponsored by Fine & Country International West Africa, Valmont Water, Vitamin Water, Giant Beverages, Sebeccly Cancer Care, She Writes Woman, Bella Naija, Guardian Woman, Genevieve Magazine, Madame Solange, Zesty Juices, Lasena Water, Motherhood in Style Magazine, Spice TV, HIIT Squad and so many more.
