A two-hour Zumbathon held at Anytime Fitness on the windy and chilly morning of March 2 raised some $725 for the family of Corey Craig, who suffered a spinal injury in a vehicle accident last December that killed another teen, Jordan Sommise of Jacksonville.
Mr. Craig, who attended Baker High, is currently rehabilitating at an Atlanta hospital. The event featured non-stop dancing from the South 6th Street gym’s Zumba instructors.
Classes meet there six days a week. Zumba pairs thumping, fast-paced music with aerobic exercise and the Zumbathon drew some 70 participants, many of whom received gift cards raffled off from local businesses.
