Some Zumba dancers are celebrating St. Patrick's Day a little early, and they're using the latest fitness-craze to raise money for charity.
Perhaps it was the luck of the Irish that inspired more than 200 people to get their "green on" today.
The YMCA and Basin Electric host the second annual Get Your Green On Zumbathon.
Dancers of all ages kick up their heels and swivel their hips during the two-hour event.
And one man braves the shave.
Zumba King Mark Anderson raised more than $600 to shave his head at intermission.
The event benefits two great causes.
"It's to raise money for the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign and the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which raises money for childhood cancer research. We have over 200 people so we definitely blew out our numbers from last year and we are just having a blast," says Zumba instructor Nicole Perreault.
The final numbers aren't in,
But Perreault says they raised more than 25 hundred dollars.
