The Wilton Police Benevolent Association (PBA) is partnering with the Riverbrook Regional YMCA in hosting a Zumba and Spinning event on Friday, Oct. 14 to put an end to domestic violence. Residents are invited to join the officers to help raise funds and awareness during the event, scheduled for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Proceeds from the classes will support the Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) and their mission to end domestic violence.
The class time will be from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Wilton Family YMCA (404 Danbury Rd.). Those wishing to participate in either the Zumba or Spinning class can register online (type ‘DVCC’ in search term). A minimum donation of $25 for individuals and $35 for families can be paid online at the time of registration.
“Domestic violence is a national issue, but not one that our small community of Wilton is immune to. Funds raised from this event have the potential to help support an individual or family from our community who has been adversely impacted by domestic violence,” says the Wilton Police Department‘s Lt. Rob Cipolla, who serves as the department’s domestic violence liaison.
The DVCC serves the communities of Wilton, Norwalk, Stamford, Darien, Weston, New Canaan, and Westport.
To help raise awareness during October–Domestic Violence Awareness Month–members of the Wilton Police Department also will be wearing purple ribbon pins on their uniforms all month.
Anyone seeking further information or who wishes to donate to the effort may contact Sgt. David Hartman or Lt. Cipolla at 203.834.6260. Questions related to event registration can be emailed to Mary Ann Genuario.
