A group of Zumba® Instructors who also work for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) recognize how fortunate they are and wanted to pay it forward. Encouraged by PG&E to be active volunteers in their community and by Zumba® to hold awareness-raising events for nonprofits, they organized a Zumbathon® and selected STAND! as their beneficiary.
Issues of domestic violence have impacted some of the members and one of the instructors, Valerie Conwright, volunteered with STAND!’s crisis line, so the partnership seemed like the perfect fit.
Thank you to this great group for breaking the silence around the important issue of family violence and for raising nearly $2,000 to support our services!
