Zumbaton Charity Event
Sandy Hook Victims And Survivors
Saturday, February 16th 2013, I had the pleasure and honor to participate in a Zumbathon
Charity event for the victims of the tragic school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
As many of you may know, last year on December 14, a gunman opened fire killing 26 people.
20 of the Sandy Hook victims were children and the other 6 were staff members of the school.
Zumbathon for Sandy Hook Victims and Survivors.
The Zumbathon was to help raise money for the Newtown, Connecticut
Sandy Hook victims that passed away. The event was in remembrance
of all of the unsung Heros that have died to protect the children that are
now alive. All of the proceeds went to the Sandy Hook families.
Over $4,000 was raised for the event!!
There were about 200+ of us that got up early that morning to brave the cold and
windy weather, all for a great cause. Once we arrived, It was so
heart warming to see that there were a sea of supporters dressed in green
There were Zumba instructors that came from all across the state of
Louisiana. There were even instructors that came from other states.
The Zumbathon lasted 5 hours but we were having such a great time that 5
hours went by pretty fast. We dance to all types of music. From Salsa,
Merengue, Reggae, Hip Hop and other types of music. I had
I am in the process of uploading more pictures and video footage. It

Please continue to keep the families of the Sandy Hook victims in your thoughts and prayers.
Also, not only those that lost kids and loved ones in Newton CT, but others
around the world that have been affected by something similar in your
prayers as well. There is so much violence going on in this world. Thats why
its best to stay prayed up. Even though prayer has been taken out of
schools, please say a prayer with your family every morning before they
leave out for work and school.
I pray that God will always protect our families and kids as they
go about their day.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. Stay tuned

May the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School
sweet little souls rest in God’s loving arms.
