The loud, pulsating music filling the Saint Finbar Church hall made it impossible to sit still, or even sit at all, for that matter. Dozens of people were up gyrating and performing various Zumba moves under the watchful eye of an instructor onstage.
But this was no ordinary Zumba class taking place on Sunday afternoon. The Zumba dancers were working up a sweat for a good cause.
A group of Fontbonne Hall Academy graduates organized a Zumba-thon event to raise money for the family of one of their own: a Fontbonne alum whose nine-year-old son is battling cancer.
