Photo Caption: Berkeley College associates and students recently participated in the Out of the Darkness Walk in Battery Park, NYC, to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Annual AFSP walks take place throughout the country and raise awareness about depression and suicide, and provide comfort and assistance to those who have lost someone to suicide. As part of the Berkeley Cares initiative, associates and students are encouraged to give back to the community by assisting charities in the critical areas of food, shelter, health and student success. Participating in the walk (left to right) are Berkeley College students Kimberly Leger of Central Islip, NY; Cristina Feilz of Brooklyn, NY; Jessica Rienzi of Garfield, NJ; Hawa Bah of the Bronx, NY; Marielena Moreno of Jackson Heights in Queens, NY; Bethzaida Torres of the Bronx, NY; Erika Hidalgo of Woodside in Queens, NY; and Carlton Harris of Jamaica in Queens, NY; Melissa Vidam, Berkeley College Director, Multicultural and Community Affairs, NYC; and Nedjyne Levy, Berkeley College Personal Counselor, Brooklyn, NY.
