San Bernardino High School and HEALTHCORPS collaborate with local fitness Organizations for a halloween zumbathon

Participants are Encouraged to Wear their Scariest Costumes and See How Fun Exercise Can Be

HealthCorps® coordinator Cameron Kinslow and San Bernardino High School, together with Zumba Fitness and Aspen Fitness Club, invite students, staff and community members to their Halloween Zumbathon. The two-hour dance and exercise event supports the improvement of health and fitness for youth at San Bernardino High School. The Zumbathon will be lead by local instructors, and attendees are encouraged to wear their spookiest costumes to move and groove.

HealthCorps, an in-school wellness movement founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife Lisa Oz to shape a new generation, is teaching health and wellness curriculum in 66 high schools in 14 states and the District of Columbia. At the heart of HealthCorps are the coordinators, like Kinslow, that spend two years instructing students in curriculum focused on mental resilience, nutrition and physical activity. Each coordinator stays at the same school for both years and plans a full year of activities, including participation in classes and taking on innovative in-class and after-school projects such as the popular Teen Battle Chef culinary arts program and Zumba.
