Zumba For Life

Sara Kilduff is raising money to fund Transperineal Biopsy, a much needed piece of diagnostic equipment to help with the diagnosis and staging of Prostate cancer.

Sara said: ‘There are so many fund raisers and quite rightly so for Manx Breast Cancer Support but there aren’t many for male cancers. I recently held a female Zumba class at Colby Football club. Just one hour of fun and we raised £1,130. I thought as I run my classes at Colby Football Club I could rally support from the players also roping in Dads, sons, friends etc.’

The event is on December 3 at 6.30pm Colby Football Club where Sara runs her weekly classes.  It’s for one hour and all you have to do is copy Sara’s moves.
