Steve Olsen VIRTUAL Run for Rogosin

Fri August 7 - Sun August 16, 2020

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Annual Steve Olsen Run for Rogosin will be held VIRTUALLY. The health and safety of our entire Rogosin community is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, we have cancelled the in-person event originally scheduled for Sunday, June 14th and instead invite you to join us for our first ever VIRTUAL run/walk Friday, August 7th – Sunday, August 16th celebrating our hardworking & incredible staff of doctors, nurses, dietitians, technicians, social workers and more for the dedication to support and care for our patients and their families, especially during these unprecedented times.

For those wondering - what is a virtual run/walk? A virtual run/walk is an event that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk around your neighborhood, on your favorite trail, on the treadmill. It’s completely up to you!
We can’t be together in-person on June 14th but let’s celebrate together virtually from Friday August 7th – Sunday, August 16th!

Anywhere you choose! - your favorite trail, your neighborhood, your treadmill

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 have always made 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.


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.
