The Hispanic League wants you to break a sweat for a good cause.
The nonprofit advocacy organization will host a Zumbathon on Saturday (March 7) from 7 – 9:30 p.m. at the Village Inn Event Center, 6205 Ramada Drive in Clemmons.
Admission is $15 at the door. Proceeds will support the “Zumbathon Scholarship,” which will be one of several the League will present to a deserving local student later this year.
A litany of well-known fitness instructors will take turns leading the dance-tinged marathon workout. They include Greicy Barahona, Ale Burrone, Christine Childs, Bonita Harmel, Liz Romo-Kelly, Mary Kevin Miller, Helen Naples, Laquinta Jackson, Adi Tsemah, Carlotta Wilkerson and Cortney Wilson.
Since 2000, the Hispanic League has awarded 214 scholarships worth more than $400,000. The scholarships are presented in $2,000 annual awards given to outstanding Hispanic/Latino students who are current or former Forsyth County ESL (English as a Second Language) students and may fall under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program.
To support middle school education, Hispanic League members and volunteers visit ESL students at seven local middle schools to inspire them to improve and continue their education. The Hispanic League also rewards ESL students’ academic and behavioral achievements at the end of each school year.
