Today, Zumba-lovers raised money for a local charity while raising their heart rates. When the instructors scheduled the Zumba-thon months ago, they didn't realize it was on Easter weekend. Their worries washed away, because even heavy rain couldn't keep supporters away from the event. Over 70 participants showed up to dance for the cause. The proceeds of the Zumba-thon are going towards St. Jude's Research Center.
Organizers say this will become an annual event...but they'll make sure not to schedule it on a rainy holiday weekend next year.
