Zumbathon 2013

Zumbathon 2013

Wow! While the temperatures on March 10th soared to spring like conditions in Arlington, Virginia, the Creative Arts Center was packed with people that came out to support the Merica House 2013 Zumbathon.

This year we had even more participants thanks to the staff at the Creative Art Center. Owner of the studio, Mr. Emerson Doyle, donated the use of the facility and was our biggest sponsor.  Zumba instructor, Gaby Macias, brought in a team of Zumba instructors that kept the music going and everyone dancing.

Organized by Kathy Shields and Gaby Macias, the event was a huge success and fun for all. Gaby’s team led a roomful of fitness buffs and wanna be’s in one of the most enjoyable types of exercise available.

There were representatives from APD, as well as three residents from Merica House. Our thanks go out to everyone who made the event so successful. The Zumbathon raised $600.00 for Merica House.
