The Sigma Alpha Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., in Tifton, held a heath awareness event today that involved a lot of dancing!

The sorority sponsored a zumba session to raise awareness about being active and getting fit while having fun. Sorority member Lisa Love says AKA has a health initiative on a national level and this was an event to connect the community to the importance of physical fitness. "It is important to get started at a young age, so it's something that you continue to do. It's also important for our seasoned ladies to know that it's important also to be healthy" says Love.

The group also offered healthy snack options to participants. After the event, they donated canned goods to a deserving member of the community.
