HAMPSTEAD - A Zumbathon will be held at the Zone Gym in Hampstead on Friday May 10th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This “Zumbathon to Stop Diabetes” is the first in a string of three Fab Fitness Fridays events around the area, all to support Team Ben’s Buds, a New England Classic Tour de Cure team created by Benjamin Goodwin(Plaistow), who has Type 1 Diabetes and rides to support the American Diabetes Association.
The Zumbathon is being run by team captain Meagan Campbell, and local Zumba instructors who are passionate about raising money for diabetes research, a local diabetes camp, and diabetes education. The event is going to be 1 and 1/2 hours of the best Zumba that the Merrimack Valley has to offer, and there will also be raffle prizes, event swag, and a fun photo booth. Tickets are $15.00, and the event is open to the public. All proceeds will go to the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure.
