The Lambda Chapter of Chi Tau Epsilon, or Dance Honors Society, hosted their annual Zumbathon event to raise money and awareness for mental health awareness month.
Participants were encouraged to wear green, the color for mental health awareness and bring $3 donations. A total of $105 was raised and will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, since self-harm and mental illnesses are often linked.
The Zumbathon, which lasted three hours, took place in Brown Gym. The dances were taught by the organization’s own, Bryan Baines, who also teaches Zumba classes in the ULM Activity Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
According to the society’s officers, this event had a greater turnout than their previous Zumbathons which raised money for Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer organization in the U.S.
