Jazzin’ it up for breast cancer research in View Royal

Fundraiser workout day planned for this weekend at Shoreline

Vicki Waters’ Jazzercise classes are extremely popular, if a recent session at Shoreline Community Middle School is any indication.

The well-known West Shore exercise guru is hoping for another big crowd this Saturday (Oct. 17) as she invites people at all fitness levels to join in a fundraiser to help fight breast cancer.

Jazz it Up For The Cure, a twist on the recent CIBC Run for the Cure, is the franchised exercise company’s contribution to helping fund research into treatment and support for breast cancer patients.

“The Victoria Jazzercise community has raised $250,000 over the years,” Waters says of the success of this and related events.

Not only are a pair of classes scheduled for the day, at 1 and 2:15 p.m., a variety of gift baskets will be raffled off, each with a different collection of donated items, from nights out to culinary delights and personal care services to practical goods for the home.

Waters says joining the workouts is not mandatory for people who’d like to help the cause. “Giving has so many different faces. Everybody’s welcome. If you want to work out with us, that’s great, but if you want to just come in and check out the baskets or make a donation, that’s great too.”

The baskets will be on display in the gym at Shoreline, 2750 Shoreline Dr. in View Royal. For more information, call Waters at 250-474-6602 or check out Vicki Waters Jazzercise on Facebook.
