Travellers to Cape Town this march can join in on an annual Zumbathon event in the name of charity.
The event to take place on March 3 at Good Hope Seminary School in Vredehoek will showcase a gigantic outdoor Zumba class in Cape Town. Zumbathon For A Cause attracts Zumba enthusiasts from all ages places to participate in what is considered as the biggest Zumba class in South Africa.
Some of the proceeds of this year's event will benefit Hope Cape Town, an organisation that dedicates its efforts to fight against inform about and help victims of HIV and Aids.
Zumbathon For A Cause organiser, Didier Moestus, said this year's event is looking to create more awareness around World Aids Day and people affected by or living with the disease in The Western Cape.
“Our team conducted research regarding who the best organisation was involved with informing, helping and preventing HIV and Aids education and we were touched by Hope Cape Town and the work that they do. We actually met with some of the children who come from families devastated by this disease and it was an eye opener for us. Hope Cape Town's dedication to save lives is authentic and touching but also, they are doing it with a smile on their face,” he says.
The theme colour of this year's Zumbathon For A Cause event is purple and pink, and all Zumba lovers, fitness fans, moms, and travellers who want just an excuse to smile and dance in the morning, are encouraged to join in on the fun on the day.
Participants can look forward to two outdoor classes of Zumba. Renowned SA Zumba instructor, Lucas Mthenjane, will be the main Zumba instructor on the outdoor stage.
