What is Soaringwords?
Where does Zumba Fitness fit in?
What’s the story with the Rhode Island chapter?
Lynn Sheehan and the CEO of Soaringwords, Lisa Burksbalm met in late Jan 2015 at a Steve Boedt and Kass Martin Soaringwords Master Class. From that first meeting Lynn knew this was an organization that Rhode Island would benefit from especially in Hasbro Children’s hospital! In the months followed working with Lisa and Shira Bordoloi (Zumba Fitness liason for Soaringwords) she was joined by fellow co-lead Victor Kong and with lots of push to get organized and volunteers the first class took off on Thursday March 18th and Soaringwords + Zumba Fitness was brought to the staff and children of behavioral medical unit in the hospital! Since then bi-weekly classes are held continuosly with amazing volunteers like Isabel Carolina Pestana, Lori Senno, Sue Oresman, Kerri Baker, Traci Bartlett, Michelle Calise, Laura Lanni, and Jose Rodriguez bringing their energy and breaking up the day that hospital patients desperately need!
Recently Rhode Island Soaringwords had the pleasure of being invited to Camp Braveheart hosted by the Rhode Island Hospice & Care Unit! There’s no limit to how far we can reach out and as always we are always looking for more volunteers!
