The first ever “Amigas Groove for the Cure“Â will take place Saturday, November 2 at the Miami Tower and promises to be an unforgettable fundraiser to raise money to fight breast cancer – Latina style. Attendees will be able to shake, shimmy and salsa to support a great cause with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale affiliate.Â Maria Alejandra Requena will be the Mistress of Ceremonies for the charity event, which also includes a motivational panel, Latin Fusion fitness class, healthy snacks and much more.Â Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Latinas, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Despite the fact that Latinas have lower breast cancer rates than white women, they are more likely than whites to be diagnosed at a later stage, when the cancer is more advanced and harder to treat.Â The first ever “Amigas for the Cure” is hosted by Miami Fashion Trends with all donations benefitting Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. The event is supported by Space Coast Credit Union, Hispanic Marketers and Marketwired as the official wire sponsor.Â Once registered, you can make your $15 donation directly to Susan G. Komen at the door the day of the event and receive your pink wristband.Â The official event hashtag is #Amigas4Cure.
