Running the NYC Marathon and raising money to fight poverty in NYC!
July 17, 2016
BENEFITING: Robin Hood
ORGANIZER: Robin Hood
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
We often say that the work we do in partnership with our students and families at Uncommon Schools is a marathon, not a sprint; it requires persistence through many ups and downs. I will be running my first NYC Marathon in 2016 to support this idea, as well as an organization that helps make it possible - Robin Hood. Thank you for helping me raise money for Robin Hood to continue its important work of fighting poverty in NYC, including its support of Uncommon Schools!

TO OFFICIALLY JOIN OUR TEAM, PLEASE CONTACT MACKENZIE SWIRBUL (email@example.com).
Robin Hood is proud to participate in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. Our team of 100 runners will commit to training and raising money with the promise that 100% of every dollar will be used for Robin Hood’s relentless fight against poverty. It’s no small thing: to date, Race for Robin Hood has raised over $6 million dollars to aid poverty-fighting efforts.
On race day, November 6, we invite you to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends as we cheer these real-life heroes on at Mile 20 in the Bronx.
Please help support these runners and their mission to fight poverty. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or make a general donation in support of the entire Robin Hood team. Look what your support can help do for the city of New York:
- $50 covers the daily wage for one formerly homeless man to participate on a work crew assignment that prepares him for full-time employment.
- $75 feeds a family of three for a week.
- $100 provides one night of safe shelter for a family.
- $360 provides a single immigrant mother with a microloan to start her own business.
- $450 provides immigrant students with a college counselor to help prepare applications for schools, scholarships, and financial aid.
- $1000 provides regular asthma treatment to a child, so they can take fewer sick days from school.
