Genesys Athletic Club hosts fundraiser for cancer

GENESEE COUNTY — Genesys Athletic Club (GAC) will host Shakin’ it for a Cause — a fundraiser to benefit Genesys cancer patients. The event, open to the entire community – will take place April 29, from 6-9 p.m., at GAC. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The evening includes a 45-minute Zumba class featuring some of the top Zumba instructors in the area, a 45- minute Ripped class, door prizes, raffles, refreshments, official Zumbawear and Ripped wear to purchase, and much more.

A portion of the proceeds from Shakin’ it for a Cause will go to Reunion with a Cause, an annual walk held at Holly High School to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to celebrate cancer survivors.

Sponsored by Genesys Health Foundation, this event includes music, entertainment, food, and a candle lighting ceremony.

Funds raised from Reunion with a Cause are used to help Genesys cancer patients pay for medications, medical equipment, rental equipment such as wheelchairs, private pay aides, transportation to and from cancer treatments, and other special needs not covered by health insurance. Last year over $80,000 was raised. This year’s Reunion with a Cause will take place Aug. 12 at Holly High School. The public is welcome and encouraged to participate.

To register for Shakin’ it for a Cause, call Genesys Athletic Club at 810-606- 7300. Cost is $30 for early registration, and $35 at the door. Last year’s Shakin’ it event raised $3,000 for Genesys cancer patients.
