The Run for Rogosin is in its 8th YEAR !  It was founded by kidney transplant recipient Steve Olsen, owner of the West Bank Cafe 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, make this a one- of-a-kind event. 

Steve received a kidney transplant several years ago but for 8 years beforehand, experiences the best dialysis care through The Rogosin Institute. Before his illness Steve was an avid runner, completing two NYC marathons and encouraging friends in their training.  He was so grateful for the amazing care he received, he started this event to benefit Rogosin. That first year he was soo sick to run himself but since the kidney transplant he received through Rogosin, Steve has been back o his feet running alongside even more people.

The Run for Rogosin has grown over the years because more and more people want to spread awareness about kidney disease and how staying fit can help prevent it.
