Zumba-ing for Inspirations!
By Randy Pinsky
A hardy group of Zumba-ers braved Montreal’s recent snowstorm to participate in ‘ZUMBA for a Cause’; an Inspirations fundraiser. In partnership with Concordia University’s PERFORM Centre, participants enjoyed upbeat rhythms and challenging dance routines led by experienced instructor, Tanja.
Why Zumba, you may ask? Well, Team Inspirations is gearing up for the upcoming Scotia Bank Charity Challenge! With team members walking or running the various route options, the fundraiser put some extra pep in their preparation.
With the generous support of the PERFORM Center, we raised funds for special needs programming as well as Inspirations’ ambitious next projects. Paramount in our mind is a refurbished, updated, and highly substantiated Resource guide to
accompany our Database of
Special Needs Resources.
Our intention is to create a step-by-step guide for equipping parents on their journey from diagnosis to transition, and everything in between.
In assisting others to navigate what can often be a complex system, parents are empowered and better prepared for the next step in their families’ lives. Such a resource effectively responds to a pronounced need, and will serve to alleviate much of the anxiety and ‘unknowns’ many grapple with.
There's still time to join Team Inspirations! Contact Randy Pinsky at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
