Community Health Network employees continue to raise funds for the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, donating money through the Community Health Network Foundation. The latest effort came in the form of robust dancing, dubbed “Zumba 4 Haiti,” as employees performed the Zumba at BodyZone Fitness Center, a northeast side fitness center for network employees and families on February 20. The minimum donation to participate in the two-hour Zumba class was $10.00.
“Many of our employees have expressed interest in helping the people of Haiti who have been displaced, injured, and left homeless by the earthquake in Haiti,” said Todd Williams, director of network fitness for Community Health Network. “The Zumba dance class was an opportunity for employees and their families to let loose, burn calories and help out with a great cause.”
All funds raised from the class will go to the American Red Cross. Community Health Network employees and physicians have generously contributed to the Haiti relief efforts through the Community Health Network Foundation. Since the earthquake on January 12, nearly $8,000 in cash and pledged donations have been raised. So far, the foundation has sent the American Red Cross checks for $3,240, and more checks will be sent as pledges are paid. Donations continue to come in and can be made at eCommunity.org.
