From rocket scientists to nurses, we have helped them all. There is no reason why Hispanic students cannot be highly successful simply because they do not have the resources to pay for their education. That's why every year we decide to do something about it so that they can achieve their dreams, but we cannot do it alone. We believe that we are stronger together and that everyone is a part of the whole.
February is American Heart Month and hearts will be pumping at the 8th Annual Hispanic League Zumbathon®. The Hispanic League and American Heart Association have teamed up to raise money for the Hispanic League’s Scholarship Program and help you love your heart. Twelve instructors from different parts of the Triad will come together at the Village Inn Event Center on Sunday, February 25th from 2:00-5:00p.m. for the Hispanic League’s Annual Beating Hearts Zumbathon®.
Zumba is an aerobic program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. It gets people dancing and exercising, all while laughing and having fun. The Zumba motto, “Join the Party, Ditch the Workout”, reiterates the heart-healthy fun this evening will provide. And more importantly, it’s for all skill levels and all demographics. “We want to include everyone with this event – so adults, seniors, young adults, children and both women and men will enjoy themselves,” said Luisa Elena Alvarez, the Hispanic League Zumbathon Coordinator. “Instructors want participants to just keep moving and have fun!”
