These Greenwich High School athletes participated in the Walk the Walk Against Domestic Violence. In honor of the YWCA Greenwich turning 101 this year, they are helping to mark the occasion by walking 100 miles throughout the month of September and October and joined the socially distanced walk for a mile on October 4th at Bruce Park. LOOK caught up with them to find out what’s going on in their sporty worlds.

Please register as a walker and ask friends and family to support you with a donation. Funds raised by this event will support YWCA Greenwich’s Domestic Abuse Services. For more information and to register, visit ywcagrn.org/walkthewalk.
