Date of event: Sunday 20th March 2016
JM DanceFit team of Adults and Children raised a massive £3,500 for charity and gain the top position on the UK Teams Mile Leaderboard!!
On Sunday 20th March a team of thirty two JM DanceFit Zumba Divas from the Sidmouth, Sidford, Seaton, Newton Poppleford and Exeter classes successfully completed their three mile Sport Relief challenge by walking, zumbaring and wiggling their way around the Sidmouth Byes. The team of Adults and Children raised a massive £3,500 for the charity and held the top position on the UK Teams Mile Leaderboard for three weeks leading up to the event.
The JM DanceFit Adult and Children’s Zumba classes are all about getting active and focus on having fun while ‘exercising in disguise’ in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Therefore, taking part in this particular event was a great opportunity for all class members from around East Devon to get together and have fun exercising, while raising important funds to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world's poorest countries.
JM DanceFit Founder Johanna Morgan said: I am incredibly proud of our team and their amazing fundraising efforts. The team is absolutely ecstatic with the amount they have managed to raise to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Our motto in class has always been 'alone we can do so little, together we can do so much' and, having raised the most funds in the whole of the UK as a team, demonstrates how when you put your minds together, there's no limit to what you can achieve. We would all like to say a huge thank you to all those who sponsored us. Together we have made a real difference.
