A group of locals at Central Park recently raised more than $2,200 for the people of Puerto Rico as part of a Zumbathon event.

The fundraiser, entitled “Puerto Rico on my Mind,” sought donations to help in providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

There were more than 150 people in attendance at Central Park on Oct. 21, as well as 13 Zumba fitness instructors. Hosts were Barbara Smith, Diane Wade and Julie Albert.

Group leaders wished to thank instructors, attendees, Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department, vendors, Worldlogo Inc., Penney Hogan and Artistic Bakery Designs.
