Want to shed a few pounds after the holidays? One way to kick-start any exercise program is to Zumba! Project Help is hosting their Second Annual Zumbathon on Saturday January 18, 2014 from 9am-11am at Dance Murfreesboro which is located at 730-A Middle Tennessee Blvd between Salem Hwy and Church St.
Kids love saying "Zumba" and "Zumbathon."
Cynthia Jones Photography at Studio C will be on hand to capture the event. Everyone who participates is given a free Water Bottle, refreshments and a chance to win a fabulous door prize! You can actuallyburn over 1000 calories an hour by dancing and you don’t have to know Zumba to participate! Cost is just $20 or go to www.facebook.com/projecthelp and follow the links to pre-register online for $15. Doors open at 8:30am!
Thanks to the generosity of all who are helping with the event including Project Help Advisory Board, Amazing Zumba Instructors, Dance Murfreesboro, Cynthia Jones Photography at Studio C, WGNS Radio; donated door prizes from Bombshells Hair Studio and Spa, Olympus Athletic Club, Positiffitea, YMCA, Barre 11, O’Possums Restaurant and many others 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Project Help.
Says Susan Waldrop, Director “Having never “Zumba-ed” until last year’s event, I now know that: Loud music + well-trained instructors + dancing + fun lighting + MAJOR enthusiasm=quite the exhilarating experience. I'm not sure how much energy it would actually take to do the entire 120 minutes (I managed about 13) but I did recognize that those folks who could persist were having a great time AND they looked fabulous. The staff at Project Help appreciates everyone’s efforts in putting this fundraiser together. Purchasing supplies for everyday operations is an ongoing struggle; the money generated by last year’s Zumbathon really helped a lot. (My goal is to dance for 15 minutes this year; we’re asking that everyone keep a good thought.)“
About Project Help:
Project Help is an inclusive preschool for toddlers and young children-ages 12 months to kindergarten. Children who have developmental delays learn and play with those who are developing typically. The programs engage children in a variety of fun and exciting educational experiences. Because Project Help is a part of both MTSU and Rutherford County, linkages and relationships are strong due to the involvement of professional educators providing hands-on outreach to families. Additionally, being able to offer practical training to MTSU and Motlow State students is an extremely important feature in the continuation of program growth and the provision of new components of service; we’re blessed to be a part of this community. Project Help has been serving the MTSU and Middle Tennessee communities for nearly 30 years.
