Lost&Found’s SDSU chapter hosts Zumbathon April 22
Dancing for mental and physical wellness is the plan for SDSU Lost&Found’s third-annual Zumbathon, set for April 22 at Jack’s Place in the South Dakota State University Student Union.
“All students and community members of all ages are welcome to join us,” said Asha Hertler, adviser to SDSU’s Lost&Found chapter. “We invite you to ‘dance for resilience’ – to connect with others.”
The good vibes of the event will support a good cause. “This annual fundraiser is a call to action to improve campus mental health and to advocate for suicide prevention and support,” Hertler said. “Our student organization is directly connected with the Lost&Found nonprofit organization that focuses on mental health education and advocacy work.”
The event will also serve as a year-end celebration for all of Lost&Found’s programs at SDSU. “In addition to honoring our graduating seniors, we will also recognize the Peer2Peer Mentors and Advocates who are committed to caring for their own mental health and the well-being of others,” Hertler said.
Registration starts at 3:45 p.m., with a welcome and introduction at 4 p.m. dancing set to begin at 4:15 p.m. Preregistration is encouraged. The cost is $10 for community members and $5 for students. Register here.
The event is sponsored by Brookings Behavioral Health & Wellness and Rising Hope 605.
