Zumba benefiting NAMI South Dakota

August 22, 2021 at 11:00am

Join us for a Zumba fundraising event on Sunday, August 22 at 11am at Great Bear in front of the deck. This 45 minute class will be taught by Mary W. and all ages + abilities are encouraged to participate. Suggested donation of $15 per person, all proceeds will go to NAMI South Dakota.

Shannon Peterson would have turned 52 on August 24th and we want to celebrate her life by doing what she absolutely loved - Zumba. Our mom embodied all things loving and good. The brightest light, and a faithful friend to so many. Her death by suicide shattered our worlds and tragically reminded us all that even the most unlikely of people can still succumb to this devastating illness. We can all carry a piece of Shannon with us by checking in on a friend and spreading the message that mental health is just as important as physical health.

NAMI is doing the important work to end the stigma surrounding mental health and we are proud to be donating all proceeds from this event to continue to help reframe the narrative and provide resources to those who are suffering.

Not into Zumba but still want to support? Come hang on the patio! There will be a cash bar as well as raffles, prizes and surprises! We hope to see you for this special event.
