The second charity fundraiser Zumbathon for the Y was held recently at La Paroti Mexican Restaurant. Over $500 was raised in donations and sale of Southside Zumba Crew t-shirts. Local instructors donated their time to lead the Latin-inspired exercise and dance program. Forty participants danced for three hours to the music of a variety of artists. Zumba classes are held almost daily at the Southside Virginia Family YMCA on Commerce Road. Tentative plans have been made for an outdoor Zumbathon for the Y on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Pictured are Instructors at the last charity Zumbathon (left to right) Brooke Soderholm, Courtney Vogel, Patsy Watson and Bonnie Davis.
