Clay Aiken – Clay vs. Zumba!


On Monday, February 9th, a new and innovating fund raiser for  The National Inclusion Project was posted on FaceBook:

Glow In The Dark Zumba Party for Inclusion

The event will take place on Tuesday, March 17th from 5:15pm – 8:00pm  EDT.  It will be held at the The Frontier, 800 Park Offices Drive, RTP, NC 27709.

The Facebook article says:

Join us for a ZUMBA PARTY to celebrate St. Patty’s Day and to benefit the National Inclusion Project where we ensure no child sits on the sidelines! Your participation and contribution will raise awareness and money to help bridge the gap existing between children with disabilities and the world around them.

~Doors open at 5:15 pm with Zumba starting at 6:00 pm
~Joey’s DJ Services, locally owned by Joey Browning, will be on-site to get the party started
~Mary Kay consultants Marcella Banbel Stewart and Gulanara Trauco will be on hand to provide free hand treatments
~Bring your glow sticks and wear green to get entered to win a gift certificate for a free massage
~Don’t have glow sticks? Don’t worry we have you covered!
~Registration is open now via Eventbrite. Also, donations will be available at the door using Square or Cash; however, space is limited. Reserve your space online today!

If you can’t participate on-site you can still contribute to the National Inclusion Project through an online donation.

So….what is Zumba?

According to The Mayo Clinic:

Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training — alternating fast and slow rhythms — and resistance training. The mission of Zumba is simple: They want people to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked.

So…have you a green outfit to wear on March 17th?  This sounds like a great idea for a fundraiser!!

I live in California so I won’t be able to attend, but I think I will send a donation to The National Inclusion Project to sponsor two people who can now attend.  The link above makes the donation easy!  Do you want to join me?

And Clay Aiken?  I can’t wait to see you attend this class!  I bet a video of your participation would bring in lots of donations.

  1. I Have a bit of Irish in me so I will certainly be wearing green that day! Wish I could attend cos it sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. Sounds like fun for a good cause, wish I could go, anyway I will donate, can you give me the address to NIP so I can send the donation by cheque Musicfan?

  3. Would love to be there if only I live on the same continent at least… 🙂 What a wonderful way to burn calories and at the same time support The National Inclusion Project. It will surely be a fun and exciting event. Hope Clay will participate in the Zumba session too and will be captured on video!!!

    Thanks CANN!!!

  4. I sure hope Clay's schedule allows him to be part of that zumba fund raiser! Couldn't stop smiling watching the Timeless video. Can anyone look at that and NOT be convinced that this man is a born entertainer? The clowning, the dancing, the flirting, the interplay with Ruben & cast, and the spectacular singing and harmonizing! How can he manage to be both funny AND sexy? I didn't want "End of the Road" to end! Musicfan, your daily blogs make my day. Prayers for your family, too, right now, and huge thanks for the joy you bring to others via Clay Aiken! Blessings.
