LYNDHURST, N.J. — Two Lyndhurst Zumba Fitness instructors will be donating all proceeds from her classes leading up to an event next month to aid Louisiana flood victims.
Natalia and Mercedes Novoa's Sept. 10 Zumbathon will be at 3 p.m. at the Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad headquarters.
Several of the PES members have family living in Louisiana, two of whom — a firefighter and his wife — just gave birth to a baby girl.
"He is out there helping everyone," Natalia Novoa said. "They are struggling to find a place to stay and family that were not affected."
Her $5 classes are:
- Tuesdays, Thursdays: 7 p.m.
- Friday: 7 p.m.
"People do not really realize what others are going through unless they have experienced it themselves," Natalia said.
"But it doesn't mean that it is something that we should overlook."
