Please come out for a Zumbathon® to raise money for the Davidson Family and to celebrate the life of Ceyenna Bennett Davidson.
Ceyenna Bennett Davidson was an amazing multi-faceted woman; wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, HR professional, and proud Temple University graduate. She was kind, funny, thoughtful, smart, and had a radiant smile.
Initially, this fundraiser was to raise money to help offset some of the medical costs for Ceyenna Davidson, who was suffering from Stage 4 brain cancer. I am sadden to say that Ceyenna recently passed away.
Although she is gone we are still moving forward with the fundraiser as all proceeds made at this event will go to the organization, Join Hands 4 Ceyenna. This money will assist her husband and 3 year old son during their time of need.
$20 Donations can be paid at the door or on the organizations website, http://www.giveforward.com/joinhands4ceyenna. When donating on line, please add the word Zumba to the comment section.

Are you allergic to milk or are you lactose intolerant?
When you have dairy, do you experience the following:
- Stomach Cramps
These are just a few symptoms that you can experience after ingesting dairy. The question is, does this happen within minutes or hours?
If you notice them within minutes of ingesting dairy then you are allergic. Your immune system can not tolerate dairy and sees milk protein as an enemy. It makes extra antibodies and reacts with these symptoms.
If within hours after ingesting dairy you get these or other symptoms then you are lactose intolerant. It’s possible to live all of your childhood able to drink milk and now you can’t. As you get older, you may no longer have the lactase enzyme that breaks lactose down. If it doesn’t break down, it stays in the system and acts like a laxative and can cause diarrhea, cramps, etc.
It’s possible to only be allergic to milk. There is a milk protein called whey. Some people can not tolerate whey but can consume dairy that doesn’t have whey in it like hard cheese. Lactose intolerant people may be able to ingest limited amounts of milk and other dairy at a time. Lactase enzyme pills are also available to help aid in digestion. They must be taken prior to ingesting dairy to help avoid the symptoms.
