MCCC Students Invite Public to "Zumbathon" Oct. 3
To Benefit American Diabetes Association


9/14/11


West Windsor, N.J. - It's time to dance to your health! On Monday, Oct. 3, the Student Government Association (SGA) at Mercer County Community College invites the community to participate in a "Zumbathon" benefit from 12 to 1 p.m. in the gym on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The event will feature multiple instructors who teach at area gyms who are volunteering their time. They include Donna Friel, Laura Shappnus and MCCC faculty member Helen Tanzini. Proceeds will be donated to the American Diabetes Association.

According to Tanzini, a chemistry professor at the college, the popular zumba exercise routines are easy to learn and fun for all. "You don't have to be a salsa dancer to enjoy it!," she says. Participants are asked to wear sneakers; water will be provided.

Says SGA President Shawn Khan, "Recognizing that Type 2 diabetes is becoming an epidemic in the United States, with growing numbers of young people affected by the disease, we decided to host this event to remind everyone that exercise is one of the keys to battling diabetes and maintaining good health. We hope people will come out, work out, and have fun for a good cause."

The suggested donation is $5. Proceeds will benefit the American Diabetes Association. No RSVP is necessary. For more information, contact Danielle Garruba at garrubad@mccc.edu.
