Zumbathon® 4 St. Jude
* We apologize for the delay in getting this blog out during the holidays. Even though it was months ago, we still wanted to write about this great event that brought people together for an amazing cause. *
“Something good will come out of this.”
Those were Gracie Joles’ words to her mom close to the end of her short but remarkable life. For those of you who have not heard Gracie’s story, it is simply a heart-wrenching story. Gracie passed away on Sept. 21, 2011 of a brain tumor at age 8.
Back in November 2011, hundreds gathered (including many kids) to honor this little girl and to support in helping raise funds for St. Judes Children’s Hospital. Supported by the MN Zumba Community and special Zumba Fitness guests, Marcie Gill and DJ Francis, the event was a huge success.
