YMCA dances for strong kids
Zumbathon to start Saturday
Placeholder Image

The J. A. Walters Family YMCA will host a Zumbathon to benefit the 2013 YMCA Strong Kids Campaign from 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at 2455 Howard Road in Gainesville.

Facility gate admission is free, but a minimum $5 donation is required. All proceeds will go to the 2013 YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Free childcare will be extended to all members with a $2 donation per child for childcare for nonmembers.

In addition to dancing in several Zumba routines from multiple talented instructors, vendors will sell various fitness and nutrition merchandise.

By participating, the community will help support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Donations to the campaign allow the YMCA to provide assistance to children and families who may not be able to afford to pay for YMCA services. This year’s campaign will help fund the YMCA Afterschool programs available in Hall County elementary schools.

The YMCA believes every child deserves the opportunity to experience YMCA programs, regardless of the financial difficulties their family may be facing. YMCA programs such as Afterschool do more than teach skills — they instill confidence, responsibility and help young people to be strong in spirit, mind and body.
