Charity Zumba plan for Edgware teachers

January 23, 2019 by  

Two women who teach at a school near Edgware are set to take on a dance challenge later this month, so they can raise money for a brain cancer charity.

Michelle Chelotti and Natalie Denyer teach at Northway School and will be taking part in what they are calling a ‘Zumbathon’ so that they can raise cash for the charity Brain Tumour Research. The women have personal experience of losing people they were close to as a result of this condition, making it a cause with real personal significance for them.

The duo were further driven to launch this fundraising effort after finding out that a mere 1% of the money in the UK allocated for research into cancer goes to finding a cure for brain tumours.

They have committed to dancing Zumba for four hours, involving high intensity movement to World and Latin rhythms. The school will be the venue for this event. People raising money for charity often use local printing services to create leaflets and other promotional materials.

Natalie, who lives in Edgware, told Brain Tumour Research:

“We run Zumba classes after school as it’s a great opportunity for Northway parents to get fit and active. Then we thought we’d combine our love of Zumba with our plan to fundraise towards research into brain tumours.”

The fundraiser takes place on January 26th.
