Fairmont General Hospital Foundation Benefits From Inaugural Zumbathon

Posted: Updated:
FAIRMONT -

The Fairmont General Hospital Foundation and the Healthplex Fitness Center held its inaugural Zumbathon on Saturday.

Dozens of people gathered in Middletown Mall to dance for a cause.

Participants each donated ten dollars or more toward the Foundation's plan to purchase a new mammography machine.

The Foundation only needs a little over $100,000 to reach its goal.

"We noticed that everyone has paid $10 and most people have even paid more then that," said Whitney Hatcher. "They know it goes for a good cause. They are really excited to participate in the campaign."

The Fairmont General Hospital Foundation will be holding several additional fundraisers in the near future.

They hope to have the new mammography unit in the building early next year.
