(Lewis & friend Steve Olsen)
You can help TEAM LEWIS BLACK Save Lives!
"My dear friend, Steve Olsen started a fantastic fundraiser several years ago called 'Run For Rogosin' to benefit the Rogosin Institute in NYC. Rogosin helps people dealing with kidney disease and was instrumental in helping Steve make it through many years of dialysis before his transplant. This year marks the 11th Anniversary of Run For Rogosin!
As I have done previously, I've formed TEAM LEWIS BLACK to help raise funds. This fundraiser means a great deal to me & my dear friend Steve Olsen. I hope a few of you will throw a couple bucks to the cause or come out and run the 5K. You really are making a difference by donating or running." ~ Lewis

>>> The Annual Steve Olsen Run for Rogosin, was founded by Steve Olsen, owner of the West Bank Cafe in the heart of New York City's theater district. Steve is a kidney transplant recipient and a former Rogosin patient. His and his friends' personal commitment to our cause make this an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind event.
The Steve Olsen Run for Rogosin has become a great way to inform people about prevention and risk factors for kidney disease and to increase awareness about kidney health and organ donation. Funds raised through this event will help Rogosin pursue critical research, treatment, and prevention efforts for thousands of people with kidney disease and the millions at risk for it due to diabetes and hypertension.

ABOUT THE ROGOSIN INSTITUTE:
The Rogosin Institute was established in New York City in 1983 as an independent, not-for-profit institution for research, treatment, and prevention of kidney disease. Rogosins history can be traced back to 1955 when the first Cardiorenal Laboratory at Bellevue Hospital in New York City was created and became the predecessor for ensuing kidney programs.
Rogosin is affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical College and is a member of the NewYork Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network. Most of our physicians have appointments in NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College.
