Symbolic 85-Block Relay Nets Donation for
ALS Association Greater New York Chapter

Berkeley Relay

 

In July 2016, Berkeley College athletes took to the streets of New York City, completing a symbolic 85-block relay in support of the ALS Association, Greater New York Chapter.

The run, which took the Berkeley College Men’s Cross-Country team past Tavern on the Green and St. Patrick’s Cathedral on its way to a cheering crowd at the College’s Midtown Manhattan campus, celebrated the institution’s 85th anniversary year, as well as its 80 years in New York City.

A check for $722.50 – $8.50 for each of the 85 blocks run during the relay – was accepted by Reagan Swaine, Coordinator, Fundraising and Special Events, and Linda G. Berman, Senior Walk Program Manager, both of the ALS Association, Greater New York Chapter, at an on-campus celebration following the relay.

Berkeley College launched its New York campus in 1936 on the top floor of the landmark Graybar Building. Today, the College hosts nearly 3,000 students and 500 faculty at its two midtown buildings on 41st and 43rd streets. Berkeley College continues to work closely with New York City’s workforce, and contribute to charities city-wide.

“We look forward to many more opportunities and to a bright future in New York City,” said Kevin Luing, Chairman, Berkeley College Board of Trustees.
