A zumbathon is being held on Nov. 10, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Encinitas Senior Center, in support of The Avielle Foundation. Avielle Rose Richman, a native San Diegan, was one of 20 first graders tragically killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last December in Newtown, CT. Her parents, heartbroken and searching for answers, created The Avielle Foundation to honor their daughter’s memory and take action. As scientists, Avielle’s parents see solutions in understanding our brains and social responsibility. The mission of the foundation is to focus on brain health through brain research and secondly to support community engagement and responsibility. On Nov. 10 come join us for 2 fun filled hours of zumba fitness, vendors, and a silent auction. Tickets are a $15 donation. For more information, email zumbawithdy@gmail.com.
