Get into the groove and raise money for charity

  zumbahton logo

People in Leeds are being encouraged to take part in a three-hour Zumbathon challenge to raise money for people in hospital.

The Zumbathon, organised by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, will take place on Sunday 29 April at the Northern Ballet between 11am and 2pm.

Zumba is one of the most popular fitness classes around at the moment. It’s good for your body and mind and it’s great fun too. The Zumbathon will be part of the Trust's ‘What’s your Goal?’ campaign, which looks to raise funds for patient healthy living equipment and to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

The mental health and learning disability provider have joined forces with four Zumba instructors and the Northern Ballet in Leeds. The venue has capacity for more than a 100 participants and people of varied ability are being encouraged to get involved.

The entry fee for the event is a very affordable £5. Participants will also commit to raising funds through sponsorship. Dani Byars, the lead instructor for the Zumbathon and her team will be providing their services free of charge in order to raise as much as possible.

Dani Byars, Zumba instructor in Leeds said: "Zumba is a fantastic way to keep fit and healthy but more importantly to have fun! It helps stimulate the mind as well as the body. There are no complicated dance routines and it’s suitable for everyone at mixed abilities. I am thrilled to be a part of this brilliant campaign to encourage positive wellbeing and physical health in the local community. Join us and help raise funds for a very worthy cause.”
