A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Zumba class raises more than $2,000

 

Comfort Zone young adult camper and volunteer Jess Lavine recently held her second annual Zumba fundraising event for Comfort Zone in Massachusetts, this year bringing in more than $2,000.

 

Jess says that hosting this event has “brought together two of the most important communities in my life.”

 

With her friend Renae Nichols, the Zumba fundraiser has been held for both children and adults. The children’s portion includes dancing, games and limbo, while the adult class gets to experience dancing from six instructors in one night.

 

“Despite the snowy and slow commute,” Jess says about this year’s event, “everyone was smiling as they danced the night away for a good cause. Not only do the attendees get in a fun and high energy workout, they get to learn about Comfort Zone Camp too.”

 

Jess first came to Comfort Zone in 2013 as a young adult camper and has stayed involved because the experienced helped find a new “spark” in life following her mother’s death.

 

“My experience as a camper and now as a volunteer has continued to enrich my life,” she says. “Camp is a magical place full of love, support, healing and a whole bunch of fun.”

 

Jess says that she plans to continue fundraising so more children get to benefit from camp.

 

“I know how healing this program can be and I want to do everything possible to make sure other children and young adults get to experience it, too.”
