Zumba event supporting Shelter House and the domestic violence victims they serve.
1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in her lifetime. That is more women than those with breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. 99% of domestic violence cases also experience financial abuse, making it that much more difficult for victims to break free.
In correspondence with Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the Purple Purse Challenge, Shelter House is partnering with LoCo Motion Fitness to further create awareness in the community centering around domestic violence.
Join Shelter House and the instructors from LoCo Motion Fitness for a night of Zumba with 2 of the best instructors in Northern Virginia! 100% of all proceeds will benefit the victims of domestic violence we serve. The Purple Purse Challenge is a friendly, fundraising competition - the more donations Shelter House receives, will put the organization in the running to win the additional grand prize grant money from the Allstate Foundation, up to $100,000!
Friday, October 20 is also PURPLE DAY! Dance Under the Lights in PURPLE, to symbolize peace, courage, honor and dedication to ending violence.
Pricing: Instead of a fee to attend the class, the class will be open to ALL public. However, we encourage all attendees to make a donation directly to Shelter House's Purple Purse Challenge Campaign. Donations of $10 or more are strongly encouraged.

**Donations will be accepted on-site of the event. However, due to Purple Purse Challenge rules, we ask all donations are in cash or check form.
