Bonner Leaders and Macedonia Resource Center Aim to Beat Zumba World Record

HIGH POINT, N.C., March 12, 2015 – The High Point University Bonner Leader Program will be partnering with the Macedonia Family Resource Center to host the ultimate Zumbathon at 6 p.m. March 27 at Mendenhall Transportation Terminal. The goal is to beat the current Zumba Guinness World Record of having 8,232 people dancing for 30 minutes.

“The big thing for us this year is fitness,” said Amy Hudson, program director for Macedonia Family Resource Center and HPU alumna. “We want people to see something fitness-related can be a lot of fun. We want the youth in this community to participate in something bigger than they would normally get a chance to be involved in. It would be huge to have our name associated with The Guinness Book of World Records.”

Registration will begin at 4 p.m. March 27 and has a $3 entry fee. Macedonia is encouraging local businesses to donate money to sponsor children who may not be able to afford the fee. All proceeds will go to the center so it can continue the programs they have in place and design new ones.

“Macedonia Family Resource Center is my service site for the Bonner Leader Program and helping plan this event has been a new experience within what I do on a weekly basis there,” says Briayna Cuffie. “I’m hopeful and excited about having our HPU family and local organizations participate in this great event.”
