Zumbathon – 10th March 2011

A very special zumbathon is to take place in the courtyard at Merchant Square in Glasgow’s merchant city with the aim of raising £2000 for Action for Children Scotland.

Organised in association with Time Fitness Gym, the Zumbathon, on Thursday 10 March from 5pm to 8pm, has been established in the very heart of the city’s cultural, fashion and food quarter in order to maximise awareness for the charity’s cause by encouraging public participation and support for the special event.

Jenni Morrison, of Merchant City Properties, said: “Merchant Square is delighted to host this very special zumbathon for such a good cause! We believe the location is ideal for the zumbathon as not only will the spectators in the surrounding bars and restaurants contribute to the party atmosphere that zumba creates, but zumbathon participants can recuperate from their exertions by enjoying some much-needed refreshments afterwards!”

Carol McKinlay, Fundraiser Scotland West at Action for Children Scotland, said: “This link with Merchant Square is just perfect because it is so accessible for participants whilst taking the charity’s fundraising efforts into the heart of the city centre.

“We believe all children and young people have unique potential and that they should have the support and opportunities they need to reach it. Help us take action for children to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and their families.”

Anyone interested in participating in Merchant Square’s first zumbathon are invited to raise sponsorship for their efforts or make a donation to take part. Further information about how to enter the event is available from Carol at Action for Children Scotland on tel 0141 550 9024.
