Handler Henning & Rosenberg Grow Mustaches to Raise Cancer Awareness

Handler Henning & Rosenberg Grow Mustaches to Raise Cancer Awareness












Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

If you’ve noticed an abundance of facial hair in the last few weeks, your eyes do not deceive you: the gentlemen in your view may be taking part in a tradition referred to as either Movember or No Shave November.

The Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys of Handler Henning & Rosenberg are embracing this hallowed tradition by growing out their own mustaches. In doing, they seek to raise funds for both testicular and prostate cancer research. The firm is accepting donations for the cause via movember.com (see link below), and mustachioed attorney Matthew P. Rosenberg explains why you can make a difference whether you have facial hair or not:

“No, that’s not Ron Swanson at the helm of your personal injury case,” said Mr. Rosenberg. “Handler Henning & Rosenberg is attempting to raise money throughout Pennsylvania for cancer research.

“But we can’t do this through growing mustaches alone; we need your help. We’re encouraging everyone in Pennsylvania to donate whatever they can to the cause. Every little bit helps. There’s still a battle to be fought against cancer, and if our mustaches can serve as a reminder of that, we’ll consider the sacrifices our faces have made a victory.”

The mustaches are still growing in, so there’s still time for those who are interested to contribute funds. To aid cancer research, simply go to HHR’s Bronson Brimley & Selleck LLP team page (named after three of the most beautiful mustaches Hollywood has ever seen) and make a donation. All contributions will go toward fighting cancer and improving men’s health. Plus, every time you donate, you help HHR team climb the ranks of teams raising awareness about the issue.

For those who are unable to make a donation at this time, Mr. Rosenberg has some words of wisdom:

“We understand that not everyone will be able to make a sizable donation, but there’s one thing that all the fellas out there can do: grow those ‘staches out, boys. That way, every time you’re complimented on the glory of your rugged good looks, you can say that it’s all for a good cause. Let’s make upper lip fur go viral.”

The mustachioed lawyers of Handler Henning & Rosenberg have been assisting injured parties for more than 90 years. Matthew P. Rosenberg and the rest of the firm’s attorneys offer representation to those injured in a host of practice areas, including automobile accidents, defective medical devices, premises liability, dog bites, and more. Injured parties and those seeking help with their Social Security or workers’ compensation claims may call to obtain a free consultation or visit the website to learn more about the firm’s services.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Pit bull celebrity dogs Hector and Wallace, along with their adopter Andrew “Roo” Yori, are making their first appearance in Southern California to celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day with a book signing and cocktail reception October 30th from 6-8pm at Healthy Spot in Marina Del Rey.

Both dogs have milestones to celebrate this year. Wallace is the subject of a new book, authored by Jim Gorant, which chronicles his heroic journey from unwanted shelter dog to a flying disc national champion. Hector, who was lucky enough to survive Michael Vick’s infamous Bad Newz Kennels, is marking the five year anniversary of his release to rescue.

Hector, who was featured in Gorant’s previous award winning book The Lost Dogs, has earned both a Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog certification. Wallace and Hector, along with adopter Yori, are on a mission to change the often negative stereotypes of pit bull type dogs.

The first five attendees at the reception will receive a free copy of the new book Wallace: The Underdog Who Conquered a Sport, Saved a Marriage, and Championed Pit Bulls–One Flying Disc at a Time autographed by Yori. Additional books will be available for sale and autographs, while supplies last.

The celebration is sponsored by Found Animals Foundation and Angel City Pit Bulls and generously hosted by Healthy Spot.

Healthy Spot is located at 4718 Lincoln Blvd. Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.

Interview and broadcast opportunities will be available.

For detailed information about the cocktail reception and book-signing event, contact Teresa Buyikian at (213) 925-8188. Attendees may RSVP to this event on Facebook.

Hundreds of Hikers Join the Boy Scouts has a New disAbled Awareness Trail is dedicated at Camp Agawam in Lake Orion, Michigan

Hundreds of Hikers Join the Boy Scouts has a New disAbled Awareness Trail is dedicated at Camp Agawam in Lake Orion, Michigan










(PRWEB) October 14, 2004

Hundreds of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and their families enjoyed the crisp early autumn weather at Camp Agawam near Lake Orion, Michigan on Sunday October 3rd. Scouts took in the early fall colors while hiking along the many trails in one of the oldest continuously operating Boy Scout camps in the country.

The highlight of the day’s event was the opening and dedication of the “disAbled Awareness Trail” The trail is a legacy of the late Ron Emmit , member of the all volunteer Chief Pontiac Trail Committee who developed the concept over eight years ago. The dedication ceremony was lead by Mike Jewell, a volunteer Scouter and Native American. At the conclusion of the ceremony the first hikers were lead by “Ranger”, a Golden Retriever companion dog trained by Gail Montgomery of Paws With a Cause. The trail’s intent is to inform the public about programs for Boy Scouts with disabilities.

Stretching just over a half mile, the wooded trail has various stations that offer interactive displays to experience the challenges that the disabled must overcome in their daily lives. The trail ends at “Fort Pontiac”, a working replica of a 1700’s fort, where visitors can see demonstrations of 18th century blacksmithing, bread baking, and woodworking.

“The dedication of the disAbled Awareness Trail is just a start.” noted Dave Putt, member of the Committee. “We are looking for partnerships in the community to enhance our program and the trail. In the future we would like a blacktop surface, Braille signs and barrier free bridge that crosses part of the trail.” Putt added, “This is another part of an overall program that Scouting utilizes for the visually, mobility and mentally impaired Scouts in Macomb and Oakland Counties.”

Background About Scouts With Disabilities and Special Needs

Since its founding in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has had fully participating members with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. James E. West, the first Chief Scout Executive, was himself disabled. Although most of the BSA’s efforts have been directed at keeping such boys in the mainstream of Scouting, it has also recognized the special needs of those with severe disabilities.

In August 1977, the first handicap awareness trail was incorporated into the program of the national Scout jamboree at Moraine State Park in Pennsylvania. More than 5,000 Scouts participated.

Today, approximately 100,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers with disabilities are registered with the Boy Scouts of America in more than 4,000 units chartered to community organizations.

About the Chief Pontiac Trail

The Chief Pontiac Trail Committee is volunteer group of Scouters operating a hiking trail system with outdoor experiences for all age groups. The Chief Pontiac Trail Program is administered through the Clinton Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America serving Oakland and Macomb Counties. Although primarily focused to support the Boy Scouts of America program (Tiger Cubs, Cubs, Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venturers and Explorers), all youth groups are welcome to participate. Youth groups interesting in learning more about the disAbled Awareness Trail can contact Camp Agawam at (248) 693-8821.

May is Dog Health Awareness Month at Pup Life; This Year PupLife.com Will Focus on Joint and Bone Health

May is Dog Health Awareness Month at Pup Life; This Year PupLife.com Will Focus on Joint and Bone Health










Fennville, MI (PRWEB) May 1, 2008

PupLife.com is pleased to celebrate Dog Health Awareness Month in May by providing timely articles, resource guides, tips and information to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles for dogs. Joint and Bone Health in Canines serves as the focus for 2008. PupLife.com is proud to sponsor Dog Health Awareness Month for the fifth consecutive year.

Throughout the month of May, PupLife.com will feature articles and information specifically related to joint and bone health, maintaining healthy lifestyles and managing joint diseases like arthritis. Arthritis is the result of inflammation in the joints. This may be caused by degeneration or swelling of the joint either through a genetic abnormality, wear and tear or infection. Stiffness after exercise or intermittent lameness in dogs may be a sign of arthritis. Because arthritis and other joint-related diseases may have several underlying causes, a trip to the veterinarian is a better choice than giving an aspirin and turning a blind eye to the problem.

It is important to know that much progress has been made in the treatment and management of canine arthritis and joint-related diseases. Veterinarians are offering more practical options and strategies to enhance the health of companion pets. Growing interest in biologically appropriate dog food, natural supplements and holistic health care for dogs has encouraged pet owners to take a more proactive approach to their dog’s diet and lifestyle in an effort to make better choices.

Additionally, veterinarians and pet owners alike are beginning to recognize that exercise is a vital link in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for pet dogs. All of us are aware of the dangers of obesity, but many of us may not know that poor nutrition and lack of exercise may contribute to an increased risk of disease. Establishing a healthy diet and exercise program will help your “best friend” enjoy a happier and hopefully longer life.

“We believe that education is the first step in creating healthy lifestyles for ourselves and our pets,” said PupLife.com CEO, Leslie Hayes-Houtkooper. She continued, “In addition to seeking out the best products for dogs, we gather a wide array of information, both conventional and alternative, and make it available to our customers to aid them in creating the healthiest lifestyle possible. That’s why Dog Health Awareness Month is so important to us.”

In Honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, Award-Winning Author Announces SHHHH!! ? NO MORE! Breaking the Silence Awards To Courageous Families Struggling with Mental Illness

In Honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, Award-Winning Author Announces SHHHH!! – NO MORE! Breaking the Silence Awards To Courageous Families Struggling with Mental Illness










El Dorado, CA (PRWEB) May 1, 2006

Award-winning author and educator Maureen Focht announces the first SHHHHH! – NO MORE! Breaking the Silence Award, designed to honor families struggling with mental illness. The Breaking the Silence Award strives to eliminate the stigma of mental illness and give voice to those helping family members with a mental illness to heal.

According to the National Institute of Health, mental illness affects 20% of all families and is one of the leading causes of disability.Over 2.2 million people in the U.S. suffer from schizophrenia, 18.8 million have been diagnosed with depressive disorder, and 19.1 million are afflicted by anxiety disorder. Despite its pervasiveness, mental illness carries an enormous stigma. Many families are often disoriented when a loved one becomes mentally ill.

Silent Heroes, Courageous Families Living with Depression and Mental Illness (Wyatt-MacKenzie, ISBN:1-932279-18-0) author Maureen Focht seeks to raise awareness and provide more education about the truths regarding mental illness so families will not feel “stigmatized” and reach out for help. Ms. Focht’s award program recognizes the family members who share their stories for their courageous words and actions, for their contributions, and advocacy, of their mentally ill loved one.

“The terrible stigma associated with mental illness makes families feel ashamed, humiliated, even guilty about their loved ones’ behavior. This must change. People must get the truth and information about mental illness and its true causes,” says Focht, who is donating a part of her book proceeds to a support group for the families of mentally ill people in El Dorado County, California. Recently, several very tragic events involving those with mental illness is also a cry for help in our society that does not want to deal with mental illness.

Alan Alda and Brooke Shields are perfect examples of Breaking the Silence Award Recipients for sharing their stories in coping with mental disorders with their books “Never Have Your Dog Stuff” and “Down Came The Rain”.

Ms. Focht is a healthy survivor of an upbringing shadowed by her own mother’s schizophrenia, while finding strength from her father, who stayed to care for his ill wife, work, and raise the family. She lives in northern California with her husband and daughter.

May Is Dog Health Awareness Month at Pup Life; Learn How You Can Improve Your Dog’s Health And Longevity At Pup Life










Fennville, MI (PRWEB) April 18, 2006

More and more Americans are concerned about creating healthy lifestyles for themselves and their dogs. With dog ownership on the rise, so too is interest in natural dog supplements, organic dog food and holistic health care for dogs. Pup Life, one of the nation’s fastest growing online retailer of healthy dog supplies, is once again sponsoring Dog Health Awareness Month this May.

Pup Life’s Dog Health Awareness Month 2006 will feature news, articles, interviews and dog care tips focusing on dog obesity, weight management, exercise, dog sports and healthy, natural dog foods. Pup Life, CEO, Eric Houtkooper says, “Throughout the month of May we will be featuring interesting and informative articles about creating healthy canine lifestyles with industry leaders including Lucy Postins of The Honest Kitchen. Ms. Postins will speak about the importance of a healthy diet and if switching to a dehydrated raw diet is right for your dog. We will also be talking with Cheryl Carter, agility expert and dog trainer at Candy’s Canines. Cheryl has some great tips on exercise and fitness.”

“Pup Life is proud to sell all-natural dog products, and we do what we can to educate new dog owners whenever possible,” says Mr. Houtkooper. As part of Pup Life’s Dog Health Awareness Month, the web site (http://www.puplife.com) will feature a variety of articles and interviews to help dog owners enhance their dog’s health and lifestyle. One issue Pup Life is specifically concerned about is the increase in dog obesity. Pup Life CEO, Leslie Hayes-Houtkooper says, “As guardians of our dogs’ health and happiness, we need to be aware of the dangers of obesity.” Dog owners should discuss proper weight and weight management with their veterinarian. “We are seeing an increase in liver disease, kidney diease, diabetes and structural complications like hip displaysia in the canine population. These increases can all be linked to the rise in dog obesity,” remarked Leslie Hayes-Houtkooper. “You can combat obesity and complications from obesity by incorporating simple things into you and your dog’s lifestyle including increased exercise, feeding raw or dehydrated raw dog food and even participating in dog sports like agility or obedience competition,” added Ms. Hayes-Houtkooper.

A simple health affirming strategy for dogs and owners alike has been well-tested and proven over time. “Exercise and eat right,” says Leslie. “It can make a world of difference for you and dog! Most dogs need more exercise than they actually get. Many people find that when they increase the amount of exercise their dogs get, behavior problems like chewing, barking and digging diminish greatly. Furthermore, engaging with your dog mentally as well as physically is not only good for her, it is also good for you,” Leslie continued. Eric Houtkooper agreed, saying, “It’s important to schedule exercise and playtime into your daily routine, otherwise it’s too easy to overlook it. We take our dogs on daily walks and incorporate playtime and training time on a daily basis.” Eric continued, “Most Americans lead busy, hectic lives so don’t feel overwhelmed by the thought of having to add another item to your list of things to do. Exercise, playtime and training time can easily be incorporated into your daily lifestyle. Turn your walks into training walks, take your dog for a jog on the beach or at the park. You’ll not only be increasing your dog’s health and fitness, you’ll be promoting yours as well.”

This is the third year Pup Life is celebrating May as Dog Health Awareness Month. Pup Life will be offering deep discounts on healthy treats, dog food and natural supplements all month long to encourage dog owners to think about their dog’s health. “Once owners try our healthy dog food, treats and supplements, most stick with them and never go back to the cheaper chain-store brands,” says Leslie Hayes-Houtkooper. She added, “Healthier dogs mean fewer vet bills, and that is good for you and your dog.”

Pup Life is one of the fastest growing online retailers in the pet supply industry. Pup Life focuses on healthy, natural dog supplies, and offers the finest natural dog food and treats, designer dog collars and pet carriers, as well as crates, toys and natural grooming supplies. Pup Life’s website offers a variety of information on how to create a healthy lifestyle for your dog including positive reinforcement training tips, health care tips and interviews with leaders in the pet care industry. Pup Life has been featured in 944 Magazine, Miva Corporation’s Online Galleria and Domino Magazine. Additionally, Pup Life enjoys widespread readership of its blog, the Pup Life Dog Blog (http://www.puplife.com/dogblog), a blog for dogs and their people.
