An annual Zumbathon event, which aims to showcase a gigantic outdoor Zumba class in Cape Town while some of the proceeds benefit a worthy cause, is set to take place next month.

The Zumbathon for a Cause event will see participants engage in a two-hour Zumba session on Saturday 3 March, at Good Hope Seminary School in Vredehoek.

The event will attract Zumba enthusiasts from all ages and walks of life to participate in what is considered as the biggest Zumba class in South Africa.

Some of the proceeds of this year’s event will benefit Hope Cape Town, a local organisation that dedicates its efforts to fight against, inform about and help victims of HIV and Aids.

According to Zumbathon for a Cause organiser, Didier Moestus, this year’s event is looking to create more awareness around World Aids Day and people affected by or living with the disease.

“We were touched by Hope Cape Town and the work that they do. We actually met with some of the children who come from families devastated by this disease and it was an eye-opener for us. Hope Cape Town’s dedication to save lives is authentic and touching but also, they are doing it with a smile on their face,” he says.

The theme colour of this year’s Zumbathon for a Cause event is purple and pink, and all Zumba lovers, fitness fans, moms, and personalities who want just an excuse to smile and dance in the morning, are encouraged to join in on the fun on the day.

Says Moestus: “Participants can look forward to two outdoor classes of Zumba, as well as a great opportunity to meet new faces and network in the process. We have a number of great prizes on offer too.”

Renowned SA Zumba instructor, Lucas Mthenjane, will spearhead the event as the main Zumba instructor on the outdoor stage.

“Lucas is like a Zumba guru on this continent, and he has travelled the world to learn new aspects of that discipline throughout the years of his practise and is the only one who gives license to Zumba instructors in South Africa. We are very proud to have him involved with us. He is the engine of this event and we are really impressed with his passion, enthusiasm and creativity for this discipline,” says Moestus.

Tickets for this year’s event are priced at R100 online or R130 on the day. Children under 15, accompanied by an adult or with an ID, will pay R50. Group tickets (10 minimum) are available at R75 per person.
