APPLE VALLEY, Minn.--Friends and family of Emma Heidish are hosting a Zumbathon Fundraiser and Benefit on Sunday, December 1 and Saturday, December 7. The Zumbathon Fundraiser will be at Gleason's Gymnastic School in Eagan and begin at 3:30 p.m. The Benefit will be held at Diamond Path Elementary starting at 11:00 a.m.

Emma Heidish is a second grader at Diamond Path Elementary in Apple Valley and was admitted into the ICU at Children's on October 19th with E-coli. Her condition has caused her to suffer kidney failure. Emma is now on Dialysis and friends and family are coming together to help the family with medical expenses.

The Zumabthon fundraiser is an event that is fun for the whole family and will include 90 minutes of dance with a live DJ, more than 7 instructors and a kids zumba party. The Emma's fund benefit will feature food, a raffle, a bake sale and fun, family friendly activities.
