UNT Dance Marathon is hosting “Zumbathon,” a two-hour zumba dancing event from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the library mall.

“It is something we started doing last year and it just sounded like a good idea,” psychology senior Jacob Bates said. “Our organization is made up of 90 percent women and 10 percent guys, and they are always like, ‘let’s do Zumba.’ It worked out pretty well, so we were like, ‘let’s give it another shot.’”

The organization raises money for Cook’s Childrens Hospital in Ft. Worth and through its partnership with UPC has raised more than $3,000 this semester.

Wristbands will be sold at the event and will cost $5 for two hours of dancing.

“We just hope people will be walking by and be like ‘Oh wait what is all this about?’ And we will be there telling them what we are all about and get some more participation,” Bates said.
