DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Community Y is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday to help fund mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in the area.

For a suggested minimum donation of $5, a person can participate in any or all of four classes: BodyPump, indoor cycling, Zumba and a special breast cancer edition of BodyCombat.

The hour-long, consecutively-run classes begin at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning, in the order listed above.

Equipment is limited for the BodyPump and indoor cycling classes, so the Y suggests people call ahead and make reservations. That number is 563-556-3371.

Women who cannot afford mammograms can contact the Dubuque Visiting Nurse Association at 563-556-6200 or 1454 Iowa Street in Dubuque.

The VNA suggests all women perform self-breast exams for lumps on a monthly basis.
