About Zumba Fitness:

Zumba® is a Latin-inspired cardio workout that fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy to follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program that will blow you away. It is all about having fun and no experience is necessary! Latin rhythms include merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, belly dancing, samba, hip hop, and many more. So ditch the workout, join the party!

About the Jade Ribbon Campaign:

The greatest health disparity between Asian Americans and white Americans is the prevalence of chronic hepatitis B infection and the high incidence of liver cancer, 80% of which is caused by chronic hepatitis B infection. One in 10 Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Americans have chronic hepatitis B infection compared with 1 in 1,000 of Caucasian Americans. In May 2001, the Asian Liver Center launched the Jade Ribbon Campaign in the San Francisco Bay Area to spread awareness about hepatitis B and liver cancer in the Asian community. The objective of the campaign is to increase awareness and provide ethnic-sensitive health information to the API community and health professionals in an effort to reduce this major health disparity and improve API health.

Event Date Reminders:

Registration begins at 12:30pm, the Zumba Party begins at 1:00pm. Please wear comfortable workout attire with tennis shoes (preferably older sneakers with less traction). Bring a towel and water bottle! We will also be providing some healthy snacks. And most importantly, just remember to have fun!
