Zumbathon At The Z Fit Factory In Memory Of Josiah Clark


Those who know me, know that I am very active in my girls school. Not only am I a member of the PTO, but I also actively volunteer on a daily in one of the first grade classrooms.

A few weeks ago, we had a tragedy strike one of the teachers. Sharon Clark, was 603583_595745387116954_1856355192_nnotified that there was an emergency happening with her 9 month old son Josiah, who was at the sitters house, just around the block from the school.

She left the school immediately on foot to run over, only to find the ambulance had left and taken her son to the hospital. While checking on Josiah during his nap, he was found not breathing and unresponsive.

Unfortunately, every parents nightmare had happened to Sharron. Josiah had passed away at the hospital, they could not revive him.

I remember as a parent to a young baby SIDS is always a huge worry when they’re so young, this is what was ruled as the cause of death of Josiah Clark.

In honor of Josiah and to gather the community together to help Sharron and her family with costs, the PTO has teamed up with Z Fit Factory Zumba Instructors, Liz Davis and Christy Makulinski to put together a Zumbathon this Sunday June 9th at 1:00pm.

Here are the details:

Sunday, June 9th from 1-3pm, The Z Fit Factory is hosting a benefit for the 249171_10152883076660285_1637782695_nJosiah Clark Memorial Fund. His mother, Toledo Public Schools teacher, Sharon Clark, suffered the unimaginable loss of her precious 9 month old baby, Josiah, to SIDS while she was at work on May 8th. No family is ever prepared for such a tragic event. Let’s pull our fabulous Zumba community together to honor Baby Josiah. Admission is $10, payable at the door in cash or check made payable to the Josiah Clark Memorial Fund. We will have fabulous raffles, prizes, and a 50/50 as well! Join your very own Z Fit Factory ZIN Intructors, Liz Davis and Christy Makulinski as they lead you in a 2 hour Zumba Fitness party you won’t want to miss!

Please come join us for this cause, shake the pounds away for a good cause, have some fun, win some great prizes, and support another mother in the community.

George The Animal Steel Book

Animal (Triumph Books, June 2013) by former pro wrestler George “The Animal” Steele and Jim Evans, foreword by Cowboy Bill Watts, is the chronicle of one man—and beast’s—life and career during wrestling’s golden era in the 1970s and 80’s.

Animal melds the seemingly incompatible career paths Jim Myers followed. The life of Animal outside the ring wasn’t typical for a famous wrestler. In his own words, Myers explains that despite battling dyslexia, he graduated from Michigan State. He also married young, had a family and became a teacher and a coach at the high school he once despised.

WWE fans will have the opportunity to meet wrestling legend George “The Animal” Steele at a number of book signings he will be conducting throughout the U.S. this summer. Steele will be greeting fans and signing copies of his brand new book.

Sun, Fun, Scooters, Bikes…It’s Summer Vacation!

Finally the warmer weather has showed up…I think we sor of missed spring though and just jumped right into summer. I don’t mind.. It’s been so nice and warm!

With the warm weather comes outdoor activities! We’ve been working on our yard so far. Our dog is a digger… So, we’ve got holes all over our yard. We’re trying to fill them up, flatten out the ground, and then get some grass growing again, it’s been a lot of work but hopefully it will be worth it and we can get this dog to stop digging. Anyone have any advice for that because everything I’ve tried has been a no go…

The girls have been outside daily for the most part. Playing with balls and chalk, making our sidewalks beautiful. Riding bikes, and currently they’re obsessed with riding their scooter’s. Unfortunately, one of the scooters are probably on it’s last legs and because they love them so much I’ll be searching for a new one soon. I’ll more than likely just hop in the car down to Target or something, but I’ve also been looking online, possibly thinking of online shopping, I’ve searched and looked at some great sites and thought maybe I’ll buy scooter from Skate Hut. I don’t know, research is good, and we’ll see how long this scooter holds out for the girls.

Other than that, we haven’t been up to much in this house. I have had some dental work going on and continuing, I don’t want to talk much about that though other than I have a huge dental phobia which now because of necessity I’m almost getting over…Almost!

What are your summer plans?
