SAN ANTONIO - The Alzheimer’s Association partnered with a Zumba studio to raise awareness of the disease.

Several people worked up a sweat during The Longest Day Alzheimer’s Zumbathon. Sunday’s Zumba classes were all part of an upcoming annual event called 'The Longest Day' referring to the longest day of the year.

This year that day will be Tuesday, June 20.

“There are many different things that the Alzheimer’s Association does,” Lisa Gonzales, owner of Body in Motion said. “So you'll have all these events going back-to-back."

Two Zumba classes were held at different times on Sunday and the money raised will go to the Alzheimer’s Association.
