Joplin, MO (SNS) – The annual Dance It Forward Zumbathon will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 13, in the Beimdiek Recreation Center at Missouri Southern State University.

The entry fee $15 per person. Proceeds will help fund the Charlotte Ollinger Hopper Scholarship as well as the GYN Cancers Alliance.

Hopper, an adjunct English professor, was diagnosed with Stage III-C ovarian cancer in March 2012. After surgery and chemotherapy proved successful in her fight against cancer, her family decided to create a scholarship to help ease the burden of students facing a similar situation.

The scholarship is available to full- or part-time students who possess a minimum 2.5 GPA and are a cancer patient, survivor or the dependent of a patient or survivor within the last five years.

Registration forms may be downloaded at www.cohscholarship.org.
