Children Beyond Our Borders, Inc. (CBOB) is a 501 C 3 Non-Profit organization striving to fight against social injustices beyond physical and psychological borders. Its mission is to provide opportunities for children and youth affected by armed conflict and social injustice and to find peace, prosperity, and well being through education and empowerment. CBOB does this by creating awareness, providing educational tools, and establishing relationships. We are the CBOB Student Chapter at the University of Florida. We are a group of dedicated undergraduate students that fight for the awareness and hopeful termination to the ongoing issues in Colombia: poverty, lack of proper schooling, conflict and internal displacement.
Zumba is a Colombian Dance Fitness Program that involves dance and aerobic elements. Zumba's choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. Squats and lunges are also included. It is an amazing workout done through dance moves and aerobic exercise. All levels of dancers are encouraged to participate.
Our Zumbathon is an event that centers on health and body fitness through an ongoing zumba class. The event lasts an average of three hours, however, there are breaks in between and all participants are encouraged to rest at their own pace. At a Zumbathon, participants are instructed by professionals and achieve an amazing workout while dancing and interacting with others.
Countless individuals would benefit from this amazing, engaging, and fun event. Students, faculty, staff, and community members could participate in the great workout, where they would have fun while staying active and raising funds. Along this would benefit the many children in Colombia that have been victims of internal displacement, violence, abuse, and more. Anyone that would like to participate in this event is welcome to come and enjoy a great time. We encourage all levels of dancers to come.
