You Don't Always Have to Sweat to the Oldies

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The South Dakota American Heart Association is stepping up the pace this week with another in their series of "Go Red for Women" events. Spokeswoman Addie Graham-Kramer says they will be holding their first-ever Red Hot Zumba-thon.

"Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance, but it's high aerobics, so you can burn close to a thousand calories per hour, but it's very good for the heart. We're actually anticipating close to 200 women, and men, they certainly can bring the guys out to get out and dance for two hours."

While the event is planned for fun, Graham-Kramer says heart disease is a very serious issue for all women.

"One in three women is affected by heart disease every year, and this is really to not only help get them active, get them out, but also to be around others who may be on their first attempt at learning Zumba, but it's also a good time to bring out the girlfriends, get together, and it's all for a good cause. Because, not only are we going to be dancing for two hours, but it's also a fundraiser."

Cost for the event is a $20 donation at the door, which will go toward the Heart Walk later this month. The event will be held at the Avera McKennen Fitness Center in Sioux Falls, this Saturday morning, beginning at 8:00 a.m.
