Monica Kingsbury, a physical therapy assistant in the two-year program at Del Mar College, stressed the importance of the Zumbathon for the class.

“The money raised from the Zumbathon will provide us the means to attend the Texas Physical Therapy Association Conference in Fort Worth.”

The statewide conference draws 500-1,000 students. Physical therapists and physical therapy assistants will be present at the event and will help provide an educational forum to all who will attend. “We have 22 students in the class including our adviser who will come with us,” Kingsbury said.

One of the students in the class, Kim Whitley, who is Zumba certified, offered to help instruct the Zumbathon to raise funds.
The Zumbathon will be held 6-7:30 p.m. March 9 in the Retama Room inside the Harvin Center. All ages are welcome with a $5 admission charge.
