Zumbathon to raise money

HAZARD, Ky (WYMT-TV) -- A group in Hazard held a Zumbathon Saturday to raise money for the March of Dimes. More than 50 people took part in the Zumbathon and they raised more than $1200.

Zumba Instructor Misty Bellis says this organization hits close to home, her niece and nephew were born premature, "Alyssa and Gabe were born at 30 weeks so they were 10 weeks premature. I think they weighted 3.5 pounds. They spent a long time in the NICU, so my family has seen the great things that march of dimes can do."

The Zumbathon lasted an hour and a half with no breaks. People could pause to get a drink of water, but they were encouraged to dance as hard as they could.
