Dozens Dance for a Good Cause

Posted: Updated:

Many people who have a love for kids and dancing come together for a good cause.

The YMCA and Basin Electric put the Green Zumba event together to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.

Registration was $15 and all of the money goes toward helping kids who are battling cancer.

"It kind of brings everyone together and it's just really a fun way to raise some money and raise awareness and every year it just turns out to be bigger and better," Zumba Instructor Erin Reidman said.

Many expectant mothers are dancing for two at the event.

Katie Johnke is due in one week and says she was happy to be part of an event that helps kids and keeps her active.

"My one friend was like 'I hope your water doesn't break,' but that would be okay with me... I think it's pretty normal for people to exercise this long into their pregnancy which is good too," Katie Johnke said.

This is the third year of green zumba.

The St. Baldrick's "Brave the Shave" event kicks off in Bismarck on March 14th.
