Zumbathon to Help Raise Money for Woman with Cancer

Danville, VA-- If you're looking for a fun way to stay active, and to do it for a good cause, there's a great opportunity on Saturday.

Grace Design United Methodist Church in Danville will be hosting a Zumbathon event from 10a.m. until 1p.m.

It's all to benefit a woman named Jane Whitely. Whitely has an aggressive form of Lymphoma and needs a stem cell procedure.

It's $5 to participate, and the money raised will go toward the procedure.

"They say she is such a positive, smiling, always up, very vivacious person, and so it's exciting that we can in turn try to help her," Pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church, Charles Wickham said.

Organizers hope to raise at least $1,000 from the event. The first session is from 10a.m.-11a.m., the second is from 11:15a.m.-11:45a.m., and the last session is 12p.m.-1p.m.
