Organizers say it was a great way to combine doing what they love with giving back to the community in Houston.

“We all have family members and friends and loved ones, and we certainly have a YMCA community out there, and a beloved Zumba community out there,” said Anzala Alozie of the Capital District YMCA. “We wanted to just do something locally to show our support.”

All of the money raised at Sunday’s event will go to the Red Cross.
