Folk are being urged to limber up for a zumbathon this weekend to help provide life-saving support for a Mansfield charity.
Fit4Fun are organising the event at Mansfield Rugby Club this Saturday, 28th February, between 6pm and 9pm with hopes of raising cash for Ladybrook Enterprises Ltd’s Heart Start campaign.
They offer free two-hour sessions teaching essential live-saving skills, including CPR.
Sharron Reynolds, Ladybrook Enterprises Ltd manager said: “The Heart Start program provides an essential service to the community.
“We are often touched by stories of our participants who have lost loved ones as they were not trained to help or those who have saved lives with their CPR training, it really puts the work we do into perspective and spurs us on to fundraise and keep the program alive.
“We work with individuals and companies wishing to help their staff, it really is an essential service for Mansfield.”
Ruth Truswell, owner of Fit for Fun commented, “I’m honoured to be helping raise money and awareness for such a worthy cause. I’ve always preached how Zumba can help you stay fit, now we can say that when you take part in the Zumbathon, Zumba will help to save lives. It’s easy to get involved, from a total beginner to a seasoned professional, the Zumbathon is open to all.”
