BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – With one month to go for Brevard County’s biggest charity fundraiser of the year, the 2021 ‘Dancing for the Space Coast’ dancers are practicing their dance routines for the event on Saturday, June 5, at the old Stein Mart.
One of the contestants this year is a returnee from 2019 as Susan Belcher becomes the first contestant to return to the competition and charity event.
She became certified in Zumba and Zumba Gold as well as Group Fitness Training where she teaches and coaches at her own studio Fitness On Fifth.
Most of her time is spent raising money and awareness as well as building up support for our Autism Community in Brevard County.
Susan is the mother of two young boys.
After her oldest son, now 12, was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, Susan launched Spring Forward For Autism as way to raise money for community outreach programs and vocational trainings as well as providing Family Support Grants to fund diagnosis, Behavioral/ Occupational/ Speech/ Mental Health Therapies along with tutoring and educational support for those not able to afford the costs of imperative early intervention and life changing support.
“We support families by connecting members of our Brevard County Autistic community, empowering and inspiring others, raising public awareness to foster advocacy, and furthering access to available resources,” said Belcher.
If you would like to learn more about Susan, her journey as a mother and advocate for her son, or learn more about Spring Forward for Autism, her blog and information are available on their website: www.springforwardforautism.org
The program for this year’s event starts at 6:30 p.m. Social hour begins at 5:30 p.m.
