The 2nd Annual Backpack Zumbathon held at Canyon View Elementary brought Zumba instructors, dancers, friends, and neighbors together to shake, shimmy, and salsa for a cause. The Zumbathon was orchestrated by Myra Villafana, a member of Aguman Kapampangan International, which strives to preserve the values and culture of the Kapampangan people worldwide, and Zumba instructors Criseida Werdenberg and Michele Jones. Proceeds from the event went to benefit underprivileged children in the Philippines, providing them with school supplies such as backpacks, books, and more. Thirteen instructors volunteered their time for the cause, and the event sold out bringing in over $3,000. Over 150 energetic participants showed up to Zumba on for the cause.
