Latin-based Zumba event raised cash for Youngstown YW this morning

YOUNGSTOWN

Zumba wasn’t just for exercise at the YWCA of Youngstown on Saturday morning.

Women donned exercise clothes and contributed $5 to participate in the YW’s first Zumbathon. Proceeds benefit the YWCA’s housing, empowerment and youth-development programs.

Four 45-minute sessions of the dance-based fitness program were offered and taught by various Zumba instructors.

The idea was the brainchild of Jacqueline Robertson, a Zumba instructor at the YW.

Zumbathons are frequently used to raise awareness for causes, Robertson said.

The event ties in with new programs offered at the YW, said Varada Bhide, YWCA communications coordinator.

The YW, located at 25 W. Rayen Ave. near Youngstown State University, downtown, recently began offering Zumba, stressercise and yoga classes for residents and members of the community, she said.
