BRIDGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Ann Ruel is a breast cancer survivor who says zumba was a great way to help her cope in her recovery. She is now offering that chance for women with breast cancer, survivors and anyone else who wants to help raise money for Ruel's new wellness center, "On Eagles' Wings."
The "Zumbathon" takes place Sunday, February 10 from 2PM to 4PM and will be held at the Stephens Brook Elementary School in Bridgton. The first half hour will be just for breast cancer patients and survivors.
After the "Zumbathon" will be a benefit dinner across the street at the Black Horse Tavern. Any customer who mentions the "On Eagles' Wings" wellness center will have 15 percent of their dinner and drinks bill go toward the center.
The wellness center is expected to open in about a month and will offer massages. The center's program is called "Women Helping Women" and is a way for any woman to get a one-hour massage for $75, with hot rocks. Half of those proceeds will benefit a breast cancer patient or center.
