BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The 6th Annual Party in Pink Zumbathon charity event aims to raise money and awareness for breast cancer prevention research.

WATCH THIS TO LEARN HOW TO ZUMBA I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Treva Brown earlier this week and couldn't wait to share our conversation. As a scientist working for NASA, she knows the importance of fundraising for research. That's why she's hosting Party in Pink Zumbathon next weekend to help raise money for breast cancer prevention research >> https://bit.ly/2xIpcCU
