A Pelham Bay man used a workout to raise awareness to a cause very important to him.
Alex Moreno spent Friday bear crawling the Brooklyn Bridge -- walking one hand, then foot, at a time.
The purpose was to raise awareness about mental health and suicide prevention.
"I was in foster care growing up," said Moreno. "Being in foster care you have to understand there's a lot of mental illnesses that come with it and when you age out those mental illnesses are aged out and nobody pays mind to it."
