A statewide initiative that supports Mississippians in need of breast health services.

Zumbathon: A Dance-Fitness Party for a Cause 2014

Baptist Health Systems and fund for the girls send special thanks to the enthusiastic men, women, and children who "Zumba"-ed their way to good fitness at the Madison Healthplex Performance Center and Baptist Healthplex-Clinton during the month of October.  

Everybody involved clearly enjoyed getting-in a great workout, all in support of fund for the girls, a program providing life-saving breast health services to Mississippi women in need. 

The 2014 Madison Zumbathon was particularly meaningful to participant, Joy Milam.  As a breast cancer survivor, she knows the importance of getting an annual breast health screening! Read her story HERE.
