Avi Weisfogel Involvements in Music and Sports

Avi Weisfogel spends much of his time diagnosing and treating patients with Sleep Apnea and other disorders in his Health Heart Sleep care center. Nevertheless, did you know what he does when he’s not working? Avi Weisfogel is a long-time classic rocks fan particularly those done by musicians Pink Floyd and Billy Joel.https://angel.co/aviweisfogel

Both Billy Joel and Pink Floyd were the forerunners of Arena Band and Rock that summarized both the progressive and psychedelic rock eras and featuring great songs such as ‘We Don’t Need No Education’ in the famous album ‘The Wall’. These songs reflected the oppression and war-related forces that endangered the human freedom during the 20th century. They reminded Avi of the connection between the many casualties of wars in the earlier centuries and the passion and power that the great leaders like Waters showed when they visited their grandfather’s grave and memorial.

Avi Weisfogel also enjoys following the successes of the New York Rangers Hockey Club. As such, he often hosts a youth hockey camp every year for the club’s smallest fans in what he like to call the Go Skate Program. This program is meant to educate the children between the age of 7 and 15 years about the game, inspiring them to take an interest in the sport.

This year’s program is expected to bring together more than 10,000 regional kids who will be exposed to weekly training between the month of July and September. The program will be hosted in the NY Rangers official playing facility and will be running from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learners will be engaged by trainers from Rangers’ coaching staff, alumni and other professional hockey players recognized across the United States.

New York Rangers has been a huge part of Avi Weisfogel life helping him hold fundraising for children facing challenges or illnesses. Last year, the team participated in the annual Hockey Flight Cancer Campaign that held an awareness event in a game in Arizona Coyotes, raising a lot of money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Garden of Dream Foundation was a charity that funded cancer patients in Phoenix, Arizona.

Thor Halvorssen Embarks On A Personal Journey To Halt Human Rights Abuses

1 Comment

The founder of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen, has recently been making waves for his no nonsense approach towards revealing which nations of the world commit the worst human rights abuses. The path he has taken has set him apart from many in the human rights activism realm who have often looked to avoid revealing the abuses committed by left wing governments, such as Cuba and Venezuela.

Halvorssen himself was born in Venezuela and has seen first hand the problems that have been caused by the ruling socialist government, the abuses suffered by his own family have only added to the need of Halvorssen to expose immoral government acts. Thor Halvorssen has spent a large amount of time assembling an impressive board of directors at the Human Rights Foundation that is currently headed by former chess champion and opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Gary Kasparov. The New York based organization accepts donations from a variety of groups, but does not allow any influence over its politics or future programs to be pushed on the group.

Thor Halvorssen has carved out a successful career as a film producer, which has included his work on a number of documentaries based on human rights activism for various groups; one of the most important documentaries Halvorssen has produced tells the story of the Hungarian uprising of the 1950s against the ruling communist regime.

According to Time.com, Thor Halvorssen has lent his voice and influence to many causes in recent years, including providing his knowledge to discussions on many issues for major news outlets from around the world. Thor Halvorssen also purchased the left wing magazine “Ny Tid” in 2010 in his family’s traditional nation of Norway.
