Zumba-thon for MDA raises close to $500 Sunday

Sioux City woman hosts a Zumba-thon for MDA

SIOUX CITY, Iowa - A national organization that helps dozens of families locally is getting support, thanks to Zumba!

Sioux City's Melinda Pallone hosted a Zumba-thon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association Sunday.

Dozens of people got together at Sunnybrook Community Church for two hours of moving and shaking. 

Pallone lives with a neuromuscular disease herself, and wants to give back, because of the support her family has received. 

"Siouxland has about 140 families that are covered by MDA so all of those families are living daily with neuromuscular disease and since I have that diagnosis as well and I LOVE Zumba, I just thought it would be a fun thing to do to put together and that people would love it," says Pallone.

The Zumba-thon raised $470 in just two hours. The entry fee was a free-will donation. All proceeds go to MDA.
