March of Dimes
It's April! And, as always, we are busy preparing for our monthly event. This month we have chosen to work on a cause that one of our Bella's Zumba instructor Carmen is passionate about, March of Dimes! As some of you may be aware, March of Dimes is an organization that leads the fight for the health of all mothers and premature babies. About half a million babies are born premature or with birth defects in the U.S. alone each year.
On April 25th we are going to have our AMAZING instructors Carmen and Quinn who will bring you through an irresistible Zumba workout. We will have our special guest Onix Banegas, who is a dedicated advocate for March of Dimes. Having helped her sister Jacqueline through the birth of her twins Addyson and Adryana, Onix knows first hand the complications and struggles that come with premature birth. Addyson and Adryana were born 12 weeks early, at a combined weight of 4 lbs. The doctors told her that the first 24 hours were critical, and to prepare herself for the worst. We can only imagine how distressing this must have been for a mother and we want to help with the mission to ensure that all babies receive the best possible start in life.
We have included a link to a video that was created by Jacqueline, demonstrating the importance of this organization.
This year, Onix and Jacqueline have set the goal of raising $10,000 for March of Dimes. We would love to see you there for this event to show support for such an amazing cause. We will be welcoming any contributions no matter how big or small! There are going to be some incredible sponsors at this event, namely Just Salad, eBoost, and Rhythm Superfoods as well as Jumpgal Fitness and Mama Luisa Catering.
Be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You don't want to miss out!
