#StrongHeartedWomen Will Make Their Way to the Greater York Center for Dance Education on Sunday, August 26th with Miss Pennsylvania, Kayla Repasky
Love Zumba? You’re in luck! Adoptions From The Heart will be hosting its 2nd Annual Find Her Footing Zumbathon on Sunday, August 26th from 1-3 pm at the Greater York Center for Dance Education. We are excited to utilize this space again and devote the two hours to Zumba work-out. With the help of six of Central Pennsylvania’s finest Zumba instructors, we will join together to raise funds for #StrongHeartedWomen.
Last year, we were fortunate to host Miss Pennsylvania, Katie Shreckengast, who was on her journey to Miss America with platform: “Building Beautiful Families Through Adoption.” As an adoptee herself, we were excited to welcome her and her family to the event.
This year, we are pleased to announce the Miss Pennsylvania 2018, Kayla Repasky will be attending our event to support! We are so happy to have Miss Pennsylvania at our event two years running. Kayla is utilizing the platform “Think First America,” a non-profit she founded. She has created various education programs to promote anti-bullying and to educate K-12 students on how to use technology responsibly in an effort to fight against cyber-bullying.
Kayla is a senior at the University of Alabama pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, ultimately hoping to become a Nurse Anesthetist. She is also an avid dancer, which is perfect for our Zumba dance-filled day.
Sponsoring our event again this year is Lancaster’s own In White LLC, a bridal and dress boutique in the heart of Lancaster County. Their charitable donation last year and this year have helped us achieve our fundraising goals. We are also excited to announce that we will be holding two kick-off fundraisers at Isaac’s in both Lancaster and Harrisburg on Thursday, August 2nd all day! 25% of proceeds will benefit AFTH’s Expecting and Birth Parent Support Fund, which will ultimately kick off our Zumbathon.
For the whole month of July, the first thirty registrants will be entered in a drawing to win an 8 day/7 night timeshare ($89 booking fee). This is an amazing opportunity to support a great cause, and get a chance to win a free vacation! In addition to this contest, any person who makes a “No-Sweat” Donation of $30 or more will also be entered to win the timeshare. Two great opportunities to win!
We hope to see you on August 26th breaking a sweat with us! If you can’t make it, consider donating. Any amount is truly appreciated! And remember to tag your social media posts as #StrongHeartedWomen to promote our event. See you there.
