Join us for a ZUMBATHON® CHARITY EVENT on Sunday, February19, from 11am-2pm at CT SANCTUARY, located at 130 Scott Road (rear building) in Waterbury. ZUMBA® is a lively dance inspired exercise workout routine that is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people across the US. ZUMBA® is popular with many different age levels because of the many variations of styles and levels of the dance, depending on the instructor and fitness of the participants.
The $10/person entrance fee will benefit research for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a progressive motor neurone disease that robs people of the ability to move. Although ALS is not completely understood, the last decade has brought a wealth of new scientific understanding about the disease that provides hope for the future. ALS has cut short the lives of notables such as David Niven, Jim “Catfish” Hunter, Senator Jacob Javits, Entertainer Dennis Day, boxing champion Ezzard Charles and of course, Baseball great, Lou Gehrig. Today there are limited choices for treating ALS, but stem cell and gene therapy are promising areas of research for future treatments. More information on ALS is available at webct.alsa.org.
CT SANCTUARY’s co-owners Barbara Bastenbeck and Jodi Laskyare excited about this first time event to help find new ways to treat ALS. They invite everyone to their new Yoga, Yolarates™, ZUMBA® and Meditation facility to join in the fun, enjoy some homemade refreshments and contribute to a very worthwhile cause.
By participating in our ZUMBATHON®charity event, you can dance and feel great knowing that 75% of ticket fees directly benefit this quest to cure ALS.
