Bust a Move not only brought out the moves, in brought in the cash, too.

The third annual Bust a Move for Breast Health day-long fitness event raised $601,471 for the development of the Breast Health Centre in Halifax.

The event was held on Saturday at the Canada Games Centre in Clayton Park and featured Canadian actress and comedian Andrea Martin.

Hundreds participated in six separate fitness sections throughout the day, with the final tally seeing participants take in just over $500,000 in donations.

The other $100,000 was from a community partner.

“It was an amazing day for an amazing cause right here at home in Nova Scotia,” Laura Charlton, the volunteer chairperson, said in a release. “The energy and passion from all involved was contagious and we should all be proud of the impact we made.”

Bust a Move, a joint event of the QEII Foundation and the IWK Foundation, has now raised more than $3.4 million for the Breast Health Centre.
