Folks from around Roanoke danced their buns off in support of breast cancer research Saturday.
"Zumba for a Cure" was held at Gold's Gym north Roanoke. Dozens of people were shakin' their groove thing in support of the American Cancer Society.
People could also buy t-shirts in support of the cause, designed by a Roanoke native. "A couple of years ago my grandmother got breast cancer. I was young, and there really wasn't much for men to get involved with in this great cause," said James Thomas. "So, over the past couple of years I've designed a couple of shirts...and we've been raising money for breast cancer ever since!"
Fifty-percent of money made from shirt sales and 100 percent of donations received at the event go straight to the American Cancer Society. At last check, the event raised about $700.
