MORE than 200 participants are expected to take part in the ‘Zumbathon’, a charity for Pusat Ehsan to be held on June 1 at Fitness Zone, Kiulap, from 3pm to 5pm.

The Zumbathon is a first-time charity event held by FC PHOSPHOR foundation, a football club under Tengku Syed Herdiman, Managing Director of the club. The event is supported by Fitness Zone.

Speaking at a press conference at Fitness Zone in Kiulap yesterday, Tengku Syed Herdiman said the event which promotes Zumba Fitness for healthy lifestyle, is open to the public to help raise funds for Pusat Ehsan. The registration fee is $15 per person.

In addition to that, it is also to draw public attention and encourage charity work by donors and volunteers through positive media exposure, while also establishing good relationship between Pusat Ehsan and the organisations involved.

Present at the press conference was Pengiran Datin Hjh Noraini binti PDNLDR Pengiran Haji Abd Momin, Executive Operation/Trustee of Pusat Ehsan; and Rachael Lee, Fitness Manager of Fitness Zone.

According to Rachael Lee, Fitness Zone has been supportive of charity events in the country especially those involving Pusat Ehsan, such as the upcoming charity run. She also highlighted that starting yesterday, registration is open at the reception counter at both Fitness Zone Kiulap and Serusop branches, from 5pm to 8pm.

She also said that all proceeds from the event will be contributed to Pusat Ehsan. There will be five fitness instructors from Fitness Zone to conduct the fitness and exercise session. For those who wish to donate for the event can do so at the drop-in donation box to be placed at both Fitness Zone Kiulap and Serusop branches.

Meanwhile, Pengiran Datin Hjh Noraini expressed her gratitude and appreciation towards the effort made by FC PHOSPHOR and Fitness Zone in organising the event.

“Our overhead is now more than $40,000 to be paid to the staff at the centre and every help that we receive is really appreciated,” she expressed.

In addition to the charity run on June 8, Fitness Zone will also be organising a Zumba Workshop for Advance and Kids, which is set to be held in either September or October. Members of the public are welcome to join in the event, said Wu Chun.

In conjunction with the upcoming Mother’s Day celebration, Fitness Zone is giving out free memberships for mothers on May, 9, 10 and 11.
