Zumbathon Charity Event at Southern Vermont College

March 6, 2012

The Nursing Club at Southern Vermont College will host a Zumbathon on Sunday, March 18, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Mountaineer Athletic Center on campus. Proceeds of the event will benefit research of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The fee is $5, and tickets will be available for purchase at SVC’s Campus Store; at the “Rock Your Heart Festival” on March 10 from 7 to 10 p.m. at Anytime Fitness, 120 Depot Street in Bennington; or at the door. Participants are asked to change into their sneakers in the gymnasium in order to keep the floor clean and dry.

Zumba Fitness® is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music and steps to form a "fitness-party." Since 2001, the Zumba program has become the world's largest and most successful dance-fitness programs with more than 12 million people taking weekly Zumba classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 125 countries.
