Fundraiser for Sky Dancer This Sunday

The community is asked to come out to the South Yuba Club to work out as a fundraiser for Tresa Honaker. Honaker is the local Aerial Dancer who fell 15 feet, head first during a routine pratice in January, severing her spinal cord, causing her to be paralyzed from the waist down. Honaker continues to recover and intends to continue dance workshops in our area when she is able. Her many friends and family are organizing fundraisers to help Tresea get a wheelchair appropriate for her as well as defray other costs associated with her recovery. Tresa’s long time work out partner Diane Dean-Epps, is organizing the fundraiser for this Sunday at the South Yuba Club with 10 classes to choose from.

“We’re offering 10 classes upstairs and downstairs at South Yuba Club. We’re offering body pump and body combat, so a multitude of classes, Zumba, and people will take a class for $20 and possibly another class for an additional donation.”

Dean-Epps says Honaker is adjusting from a life as a dancer to a life with no legs.

“So currently, she’s undergoing rehabilitation in San Francisco and learning how to use public transit and how to transition to a life of getting around without the use of her legs.”

T shirts and wrist bands are also for sale as well as a silent auction to benefit Honaker. For more information or to sign up, contact the South Yuba club or e-mail Diane Dean-Epps at mswrite10@yahoo.com.
