Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

Hundreds of young adults walked across the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday during the eighth annual NYC Teen Dating Violence Awareness Walkathon.

Organizer Antonia Clemente says it's an issue that affects one out of every three teens.

Clemente is the founder and executive director of The Healing Center, which partnered with several organizations for the event.

Organizers say young adults in abusive relationships should seek help from their parents, counselors at schools, or by reaching out local organizations.
