Wow what a year AllAbilitiesDanz and Zumba with Tracy and the team had in 2017.
I worked for 48 weeks straight. (Yes I crawled just bearly to the finish line 🙄) :Together we raised $30,000 for a liberty Swing for the Dubbo Special needs population. :The team and I traveled all year as far as Coonamble , Mumbil and Molong as well as our usual locations, Dubbo, Narromine, Gilgandra, Geurie and Wellington to deliver our programs. :We literally had participants from 0 to 101. (Sadly our 101 participant passed on but he touched my heart in our sessions) :We expanded AllAbilitiesDanz to be truly inclusive and added our integrated programs for seniors and 0 to 5’s. :We helped many people along on their health, wellness & weight loss journeys. :Our team grew to 8. :We connected with 100's of beautiful children through our school and preschool programs. :We feel in love with 100's of special needs people as well as our seniors through AllAbilitiesDanz. :We got to attend some cool events such as the Colour Run in Coonamble and the Glow Run Dubbo. :We participated in the Cancer Councils Dancing with the Stars. :I flew to Sydney with Lincoln my beautiful boy with Down Syndrome and stood beside him as he did a full Zumba training and became one of only a handful of qualified Instructors in the world who have this condition. :I dealt with my own health battles for the past eight months finally being diagnosed with a painful autoimmune disease and bouts of debilitating depression that I had to fight through to just get out of bed. I am however, looking toward 2018 to put this behind me and get my own health, weight and fitness back to where it was pre-illness. We had a Zumba Baby with Team member Mel giving birth to beautiful Blakey Z (as we’ve dubbed him) :My goals for 2018 is to connect in a positive way with as many people as possible across the Central West and to continue to grow. I promise to always remain open and honest with my life and my experience in the hopes to inspire others.
Thank you for an amazing and life changing 2017.
Thank you to all of my team Erinn, Mel, Trent, Dusti, Amanda, Emily and Bec. I couldn’t have made it through the year especially the last three months without you all.
Merry Christmas and a safe new year. Let’s recharge our batteries, enjoy our friends and family and get ready to Kick 2018’s ass !!!
