Sugar Dance to host ‘Zumbathon’ for a just cause

The Zumba ladies are more than ready to flex their muscles for charity.

Stepping to a beat and losing a few kilos while at it – all for a good cause.

Julie Robert from Sugar Dance is reaching out to help the Umhlali SAPS trauma centre with a three-hour Zumbathon to raise funds.

“We were drawn to this cause and met with captain Vinny Pillay and the team.

“Their needs were clear – they needed tea, coffee, sugar and two-minute noodles for them to provide a warm drink and a meal to victims who come in.

“We also want to supply the trauma centre with a small fridge and toilet.”

The centre is used to provide a safe space for victims of crime, particularly women and children who need to be housed after abuse.

Roberts said in addition to a toilet, the centre needed a new coat of paint and the roof fixed.

“We have been quoted R15 000 for the toilet and we have so far managed to paint and get the roof fixed. The Zumbathon will be a three-hour session where we hope to raise enough money for the toilet. Currently, any abused women or children need to walk into the predominantly male police station and make use of those facilities, which in itself is traumatising.”

The Zumbathon will be held at Curro, Mt Richmore, on Saturday, August 26.

Entry is R100pp – all proceeds go to the clinic.

Instructors Julie and Chantelle from Sugar Dance will be supported by 12 instructors from around KZN.
