Dr. Kaiser and Family on Board for Heart Walk

Apr. 7, 2011

Dr. Michael Kaiser from the Spine Center has recruited his family to join him for the American Heart Association’s 2011 Start! Wall Street Run & Heart Walk this May. Here is what he had to say about it:

Any event that motivates people to help a worthy cause is admirable.  It is also a great moral boost when people who work together can meet on a social basis and just have fun.

I run regularly for fitness, about 15 – 20 miles a week, although I am no speed demon. I love the exercise but my knees may not appreciate the effort.

I will be running the event with my daughter. My wife and other kids will be walking/running.

We are primarily participating since this is a team effort on the part of the Neurosurgery Department. On a personal note, however, my father suffers from heart disease and my wife’s father died prematurely from a massive heart attack.

My family and I also participate in a local charity run known as “Richard’s Run,” a 5 K race in Ho-Ho-Kus to support the fight against pediatric cancers.

Thanks Dr. Kaiser!

You can also join our team or become a Sponsor.  The Heart Walk will be held May 17, 2011 in New York City’s Financial district. Registration and activities begin at 6:45 pm at the World Financial Center.
