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:

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.
Clay can move…
