Fayette County Memorial Hospital Foundation and Hospice of Fayette County have teamed up to present a fun and active “Zumba for Your Heart” event to kick off the 2016 Race of Fayette County.
The Zumbathon will be held on Friday, Feb. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fayette County Family YMCA at 100 Civic Drive in Washington Court House, with certified Zumba instructors Jody Justice and Nancy Spears. Anyone 10 years or older is welcome to participate with the cost of $10 for adults and $5 for children. All fitness levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. Free childcare is provided for children under 9-years-old.
“We are excited to be hosting such a fun and interactive event for the community,” said Holly Cottrill of Hospice of Fayette County. “Instructors, Jody Justice and Nancy Spears, will be leading the party which will also feature a black light party glow element.”
The Race of Fayette County has been held annually as a way to raise funds for a local organization that helps others in the community. Based on the show “The Amazing Race,” teams of two compete in a series of challenges to try and cross a finish line first. The teams travel to multiple counties in the area and meet with many individuals and volunteers to complete these challenges in exchange for a clue about their next destination.
For 10 years the Fayette County Diabetic Association has been the organization to benefit from The Race, but for the past two races, The United Way of Fayette County has benefited. The Race was successful in raising $4,000 for United Way, but that was only the beginning of giving back to the community.
This event will raise funds to help The Race of Fayette County get underway this year. The Race, established by Jeff Underwood, will raise funds for Fayette County Memorial Foundation and Hospice of Fayette County non-profit organizations for 2016. The Race 13 will be held June 10-12.
