see youngsters succeed. I like
to see them set goals and
achieve those goals!'
What does he get back?
"You get a letter back from a
youngster that says, 'Thank
you. I remember. I wouldn't
be in this college if it weren't
for you! "
And there was the time dur-
ing the 1984 Olympic team's

Greenblatt.

attorney Bob
Schwartz hits the
street Sept. 15 for his 50-
mile run, he'll be the focus of
keen medical interest. But
not for the usual reasons.
Although five physicians
will be in the ambulance and
van accompanying Mr.
Schwartz on his "Miles For
Miracles" run through at
least seven suburban Detroit
communities, at least three
doctors will be cheering him
on, not doing medical
research on near-double
marathons.
That's because Mr.
Schwartz will be running to
raise money for the
Craniofacial and
Reconstructive Surgery In-
stitute at Providence
Hospital and the three doc-
tors escorting him in the van
will be surgical fellows from
Israel, Brazil and Japan who
hope the funds he raises help
the Institute continue its
program of physician edu-
cation and research.
"It's a very important pro-
gram, made all the more so
for us in Israel by the effects
of the intifada," said Dr.
Yoram Har-Shai, an Israeli
plastic surgeon who is in his
last year of residency at the
Institute. He said many can-
didates for craniofacial
surgery in Israel these days
are children and soldiers
who have been hit by rocks.
Dr. Har-Shai, who is from
the Technion in Haifa, said a
fellowship has been estab-
lished at the Rambam

Hospital there to help other
surgeons study under the
Southfield-based Institute's
medical director, Dr. Ian T.
Jackson. But funding is
needed by Providence to
offer the training.
Attorney Schwartz has a
personal reason for attemp-
ting the 50-mile run.
He and wife Robin's first
child, son Adam, was born in

"At this point, I'm
pretty confident it
(the 50-miler)
shouldn't kill me."

and palate. Corrective
surgeries by Dr. Jackson at
the Institute last September
and December taught the
Schwartzes about the Provi-
dence program.
"They do a lot of charitable
work, flying a lot of families
in and putting them up
while the family members
have surgery," said Bob
Schwartz, - a member of Tem-
ple Emanu-El who practices
law in Southfield.
A serious runner since his
college days, Mr. Schwartz
said he'd run and walked in
other charitable events but
had "always wanted to do a
solo run for a charity. To a
degree, this is a payback to
the Institute, a way of show-
ing our gratitude for what
they've done.
"Our problem was small
compared to many of the
others they take care of
there, but it (the corrective
surgery) was no less a relief
