May 23, 2016

The New Jersey State Bar Association Diversity Committee put on an Educational Pipeline Program at Atlantic City High School prior to beginning its Annual Meeting in that city. Evelyn Storch (pictured below with her group of students) and other members of the Committee guided the students through an exercise in which they were told that superior beings had inhabited our planet and, while they wanted to live in peace with us, they also thought we had too many rights, and, instead of ten, we could have only five. The students were tasked with choosing which rights they would select and which they would jettison while discussing the reasons and rankings for each. The students seemed to enjoy the process and felt they learned much from it. Further pipeline programs are planned.

HL Staff Trained in AED, CPR and Heimlich Protocol

October 18, 2011

According to OSHA, approximately 890 deaths from coronary heart disease occur outside of the hospital or emergency room every day. Most of these deaths are due to the sudden loss of heart function or sudden cardiac death. A number of these victims might have benefited if automated external defibrillators (AEDs) were immediately available. An AED is an electronic device designed to deliver an electric shock to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. Ventricular fibrillation may be restored to normal rhythm up to 60 percent of the time if treated promptly with an AED, a procedure called defibrillation.

HL recently purchased and installed 4 AEDs in strategic locations throughout our Hackensack office. 30 Harwood Lloyd staff took advantage of training offered by the Greater Bergen County YMCA and received certifications for CPR, the Heimlich maneuver, and the use of defibrillators. We hope that we will not need them, but if we do, we are glad to have them available.

August 8, 2011

On August 6 and 7, 2011 Greg, and friends, biked a beautiful course with 5,000 other riders from all over the country, raising funds for cancer treatment and research. Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor, participated, along with other cancer survivors. With 4,000 volunteers and a closed course through scenic countryside it was a terrific experience. Ten years older than the last time he participated, Greg prepared by riding 25 miles a couple of times each week in the pre-dawn hours. before work and traffic. The first day was great, and the hospitality at the mid-way point, the Maritime Academy at the beginning of the Cape, was fantastic! The second day, on a hilly Cape course, after the previous day's 110 mile ride, was a lot tougher. But Greg hung in there, motivated by the goal of raising funds for the treatment of cancer patients, and finished with the group. This event raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country. PMC donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar directly to the cause.

Greg's colleagues at HL are impressed, and humbled, by his participation in this wonderful event.

The Michael Robertson Foundation.

April 11, 2011

Co-managing partner David Robertson is a member of the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees, and Vice Chair of the Greater Bergen County YMCA. Closer to home, Dave turned the tragedy of his son Michael’s death into a foundation that carries on Michael’s memory and helps many deserving groups in the process.

The Michael Robertson Foundation has enabled students to participate in foreign exchange programs in Scotland, has assisted campers in hiking and canoeing in the Boundary Waters in Minnesota and Canada, has provided prosthetic devices for athletes who cannot afford them, has supported libraries, The Seeing Eye, Nature Centers, a high school poetry event, Compassionate Friends (an organization that supports parents who have lost children), animal rescue organizations, CROP Walks, the Michael J.

A “T-Wall” is a twelve-foot-high portable, steel-reinforced concrete wall used for blast protection throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. The term "T-wall" is commonly used by soldiers throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, because the walls resemble an inverted letter “T”. American troops have painted their unit insignia on blank T-Walls.

Eveyln Storch participates in MS Walk to raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

April 10, 2011

On April 10, counsel, Eveyln Storch, participated in the MS Walk. She has raised funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through the MS Walk for the past 10 years. Evelyn notes that having multiple sclerosis means that a person may not be able to walk when he or she wakes up, or that a person may suddenly have impaired vision, or that a person’s memory will fail for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day. Evelyn explains why she has once again registered for the MS Walk: “I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed with MS-and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for MS, and with a diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from the MS Walk not only to support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate to the MS Walk, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, ‘You have MS.’”

Walk donations can be made at http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/Walk/NJMWalkEvents?px=1885309&pg=personal&fr_id=16386.

Information is available and general donations can be made at http://www.nationalmssociety.org.
