WILLIAMSBURG — Iron-Bound Gym is hosting a high-energy charity event at the end of the month.

On Monday, May 31, Iron-Bound Gym, 4325 New Town Ave, will hold an outdoor Zumbathon event to benefit The Arc of Greater Williamsburg.

The Arc of Greater Williamsburg is a nonprofit organization that assists young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities as they age out of public school systems at the age of 22 years old. 

Owner of Iron-Bound Gym, Scott Grafton, said that while this is their fourth Zumbathon, this year’s event is particularly special as it is the first event that the gym has held since the start of COVID-19. 

“This is really something special because it’s not only for a great charity, but hopefully people will feel comfortable with coming together and having fun,” he said. 

There will be 12 Zumba instructors throughout the outdoor event, each doing about three songs. 

Grafton said that anyone can participate, even those with no prior Zumba experience needed. 

The community is encouraged to come out, whether they stay and get exercise, or just drop by and leave a donation. 

The outdoor event will be held in the Iron-Bound Gym parking lot on May 31 at 9:30 a.m.
