Zumba For A Cause

Posted: Updated:

Mark Anderson zumbas five nights a week, but says attending Sunday's class is about more than breaking a sweat.

"The St. Baldericks Day Foundation and Strong Kids are such great causes I mean they both address real problems, so it's an easy choice," said Anderson.

The two hour zumbathon is the kick-off event for Basin Electric's annual Brave the Shave Fundraiser.  All of the proceeds go to help fund childhood cancer research and the YMCA.

"St. Baldricks is a foundation that raises money for childhood cancer research and the Y is very active in the community, so it's two great organizations and it's a great cause" says Basin Electric specialist Nicole Perrault.

The month long campaign includes several head shaving events, and Anderson says his emerald strands won't be there for long.

"Well, they announced it in class and this is my third year as a shave," says Anderson.

For those not wanting to lose their locks, Perrault says a Zumabathon was an easy choice.

"The zumbathons have gained a lot of popularity throughout the years, and its just a lot of fun," said Perrault.

It cost is $20 to shake your shamrock, and last year more than $3,000 was raised at the zumbathon.
