THE local Zumba community will gather on October 6 in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and raise money at a body rockin' charity event at Casuarina Rec Club.

The event, dubbed a 'Party in Pink', is in its second year and participants are asked to wear something pink and bring along as many of their friends as they can.

Cabarita's Zumba teacher Belen Fuller will lead the pink class and said people of all ages, sizes, genders and fitness levels were invited to attend the community based, family friendly event.

Following the Zumba class, all participants were invited to a party of a different type at the Beach Bar and Grill in Cabarita where people could "listen to music, mingle and have a little wiggle".

Ms Fuller said the after-party featured a raffle with some really great gifts donated by local businesses and members of the Zumba community.

"This is a cause that's really important to me because I've had a lot of personal experiences with breast cancer," Ms Fuller said.

"Two of my aunts have had the disease and one is a surviver.

"I have friends who have died from it and really want to help make a difference."

Ms Fuller said Zumba had helped women recover after chemotherapy and was a great way for women to heal physically and emotionally.

"Zumba is a non-judgemental way to get fit and makes women feel sexy and beautiful."

Anyone interested in joining Ms Fuller and the rest of the Zumba community at this weekend's event can buy tickets or donate money by visiting the Zumba Far North Coast website at zumbafarnorthcoast.com/party-in-pink-2012.

Tickets are $15 per adult and $6 for kids.
