All it took on Saturday to help victims of Superstorm Sandy was a little Zumba.

More than 80 people took part in a three-hour dance and workout class at Gold's Gym in Charlottesville. In all, the so-called Zumbathon raised more than $1,000 for the American Red Cross.

Others bought raffle tickets for the many prizes offered by Charlottesville businesses.

Organizers said they were happy with the turnout and are excited to get the money to the Sandy victims still in need.
