Shake it for Baby Ryan

BILLINGS -

A bunch of ladies got together and shook their bums at Anytime Fitness Saturday morning for the Zumbathon Charity Event benefiting Ryan Chevalier.

Ryan Chevalier and his twin Zachariah were born December 2012, but due to complication at birth, Ryan is constantly fighting for his life. The family's hospital bills are around $10,000 a day. Marianne Brockhason, a Zumba instructor heard about the Chevaliers and decided to put together the "Shake it for Baby Ryan" Zumbathon.

"Anytime Fitness likes to promote community service in the community and this is just a great way to help a family that's in need in our community," said Brockhason.

"On a personal level, there have been things that we have supported in the past, friends that have needed support and things like that. But we never imagined that the community would reach out to support us in such a huge fashion," said Crystal Chevalier.

Participants donated to take part in the Zumbathon and payed extra to get a T-shirt.
