The Great Rimba Zumbathon celebrates World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 10
The Great Rimba Zumbathon will be happening on 10th August 2019 at the Dayak Bidayuh National Association (DBNA) headquarters in Kuching. The Zumba fitness and wellness event is held in conjunction with the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, with part profit going to the Helping Hands Penan charity.
“The ministry supports this event as it promotes healthy activities for the whole family. With today’s fast-paced lifestyle, such activities are much needed for better quality of life. The event also promotes unity by bringing people together including the local indigenous people. I hope TGRZ will grow bigger and become an attraction to fitness and health enthusiasts from all over Sarawak and beyond,” said Assistant Minister of Youth & Sports for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports, YB Datuk Snowdan Lawan at a recent press conference to launch the event.
