The Levitt Pavilion was packed yesterday — with push-up people.
Hundreds of men, women and kids — from super-jacked to usually sedentary — did as many push-ups as they could in an hour.
First Selectman Jim Marpe banged out his. So did Chief of Police Foti Koskinas. And Paul Newman’s grandson.
Which was fitting, because all the money raised goes to the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, the fantastic getaway for boys and girls with cancer and other serious diseases. It was founded, of course, by Westport’s own Paul Newman.
The 9th annual Push Against Cancer raised well over $120,000 — a record. That makes nearly $500,000 since the event began.
Congrats to founder and mastermind Andy Berman. To the many police and firefighters who helped make it happen.
And, of course, to everyone who participated — and feels very, very sore today.
