Stan and I have known Darcy for a couple of years since we dived into the world of Zumba photography. Last year we were honored to support her in her annual Zumbathon for Sexual Assault Awareness.
We were thrilled to work with her again on a video project for her upcoming event this April. One of the most magnificent things about our creative trade is that it gives us the ability to raise other people’s voices through our own. Darcy Fox is an amazing and inspiring woman who has taken the worst of situations and turned it into something positive to better her community.
We’ve done numerous Zumbathons, all for great causes, but Darcy’s Zumbathon was always a bit different. I remember talking with her the night we shot portions of her mini documentary. We share the same philosophy on charity causes. It’s hard to truly put into words. There are experiences in our lives that are painful and tragic, and at times, it feels like there’s no coming back because the pain is so overwhelming. But we find the strength deep within ourselves to conquer it. When that happens, we are driven to make a change so that it can help people and nothing in the world will stop you. You feel that one voice can make a difference and and it will send a ripple into the hearts of the community and create a movement for change.
We want to thank Darcy for inviting us into her home, spending time with her family, and sharing her voice with us. Many tears were shed throughout making this video on both sides of the camera.
Please support Darcy at the 4th Annual Silent No More Zumbathon.
