THE STORY:

EVENT DATE: September 28, 2014, 8:30 A.M.

LOCATION: Hudson River Park, Pier 81- New York, NY

CONTACT: Standley Charles, 212-746-1552, stc9069@nyp.org

 

The Run For Rogosin race was founded by kidney transplant recipient Steve Olsen, owner of The West Bank Café in the heart of New York City's theater district. Many of Steve's Broadway theater friends have joined the crowd of runners for the last several years. His personal commitment, and that of his friends to our cause, makes this a very special event.

 

Steve received a kidney transplant several years ago but for 9 years before that, he received his dialysis care through the Rogosin Institute, which is nationally known for its superior dialysis results.  Before his illness, Steve was an avid runner, completing two NYC marathons and encouraging friends in their training. He was so grateful for the state of the art care he received at Rogosin that he started this event to benefit The Institute.

 

The Run for Rogosin is a 5K Run/Walk that has grown over the years because so many people with and without kidney disease are committed to our cause. We hope that you will take up the challenge by becoming a participant, donor or sponsor and helping the Rogosin Institute pursue critical research, treatment and prevention initiatives for thousands of patients and those at risk for kidney disease, diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol disorders. We also hope you will encourage your friends and colleagues to Run for Rogosin!
