Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort Hosts ‘Zumba on the Beach’ and Raises Funds for the World’s Children and UNICEF
Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort in cooperation with UNICEF hosted an activity-filled day on October 19, 2014. “Zumba by the Beach” saw 500 Zumba enthusiasts join a 60-minute session conducted by 6 certified instructors and, in the process, raised US$ 10,200 for the world’s children.
Zumba Fitness is a Latin-inspired cardio-dance workout that incorporates music and choreographed steps in a fitness party atmosphere. While the dance and music was primarily Latin American, classes can also feature jazz, African, Country, hip-hop and pop.
The special day at the Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort also featured a special Zumba session for children, a healthy food bazaar, and ended with a lucky draw and fun games for all the participants that included dining and stay vouchers from Starwood Hotels & Resorts from around the world.
“It is amazing to see the happy faces from all the participants during the Zumba session,” said Dario Orsini, general manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort. “The vibe and enthusiasm from the participants and supporters was amazing, and we are proud for being part of such an important cause that contributes to the children in need through UNICEF.”
Proceeds from the event were donated to UNICEF’s Check Out for Children Challenge – a long-standing joint fundraising efforts between UNICEF and Starwood Hotels. In the Asia Pacific region. UNICEF Check Out for Children Program has supported the immunization of thousands of young women and children against a number of preventable diseases.
