Zumbathon For Sandy Hook Elementary

Posted: Updated:

The YMCA Bill Bartley Branch will hold a Zumbathon on Sunday, Jan. 5th. All proceeds will go to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, where 20 children and 6 teachers were killed in December.

"It will go for the staff and the children," said Zumbathon Organizer Laci Edwards. "I contacted that bank, just to make sure they were still accepting funds, it is secure...it is going to that specific school."

The cost is just $10 for three hours of Zumba, and the Y is also offering free child care.

Zumba instructors from all over Texoma are donating their time, so all money will go to the school and families impacted by the tragedy.

The Zumbathon will start with a small memorial service, including candlelight vigil and prayer.
