Zumbathon 2012

The APD and Merica House sponsored a 2½ hour Zumbathon Fundraiser on March 17th at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Arlington, VA. It was organized by Lynne Myhre and Kathy Shields, two board members of the Alliance for the Physically Disabled.

Our Zumba Instructor

The event was a huge success as well as tons of fun for the participants. Local Zumba instructor, Gaby Macias, brought a team of Zumba instructors and led a roomful of fitness buffs and beginners in one of the most enjoyable types of exercise available. There were representatives from APD to help with set up and  three residents from Merica House to enjoy the “dance”.

The instructors all donated their services, the church donated the use of the hall, and Mitch Opalski, the Board Treasurer, donated bottled water. Our thanks go out to everyone who made the event so successful.

The Zumbathon raised $486.00. We hope to have another Zumbathon soon, so watch for more information and please plan to join us next time.
