Zumba for Zebras in Southern Texas

Avery Medellin being interviewed for News 4 WOAI.

IDF volunteer Melody Medellin helped organize and promote a wonderful fundraiser and awareness campaign in her home state of Texas. Zumba for Zebras took place on Sunday, February 26 and included not only a two-hour Zumba class, but also a chance to win some fun, free giveaways. Melody was helped by her son, Avery who did a television interview for News 4 WOAI. Avery explained to the audience what life was like before being diagnosed and treated for PIDD and how much his life has improved since diagnosis and proper therapy.

Zumba for Zebras was a resounding success with at least 500 participants! Thank you to Melody and Avery and to all the zebras who came out to support IDF!
