(Feb. 21, 2014) WOC Fitness will sponsor a “Zumbathon” open to all ages to raise money for the Marshall family as they recover from the loss of their father/husband, Dan Marshall.
Marshall suffered from a series of organ cancers that took his life on New Year’s Eve. Kim Marshall, his wife, is a participant in the Zumba classes offered at the gym.
Karen Holland, a Zumba instructor, will host the Zumbathon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Most Blessed Sacrament in Ocean Pines on Saturday, Feb. 22 to benefit the family.
“We’ve done Zumbathons before for several different causes, including breast cancer awareness, and other benefits for local families. It’s great to be able to provide the assistance in any way we can,” Holland said.
“We wanted to find some way to help and this surely is a great way to do so,” said WOC owner, Bonnie Zemo.
The event will feature DJ Jeremy, as well as raffles for prizes, including a six-month membership to the gym that includes private classes with a personal trainer.
Tickets cost $10 in advance and $12 at the door. They can be purchased at WOC gym located behind Bliss in West Ocean City. For more information, call WOC Fitness at 410-213-7000.
