Spooky Zumba for pediatric cancer

To kick off the year, For the Kids (FTK), one of the largest student led non-profit organizations in San Antonio, hosted its annual Zumbathon at the HUC. The theme of the Zumbathon was Spooky Zumba and encouraged participants to dress up in their best Halloween costumes and dance the night away. The event was in recognition of pediatric cancer.

In addition to the financial support of this event, FTK took measures to ensure that the children had their very own Spooky Halloween party since patients could not participate at the Zumba for health reasons, providing the children and their families ways to celebrate. With ghoulish fiends, pretty princesses, superheroes and a variety of the strange creatures of the night, this event was a means to illustrate to these families that they are not alone and that there is a strong community willing to fight alongside them.

FTK will host a Children’s Fashion show, with the theme Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, on November 13, at 7 pm in the Liu Auditorium, an opportunity for the children to simply enjoy showing off their own styles. The children will be escorted by UTSA student athletes and campus leaders.
