BENEFITING: Robin Hood
ORGANIZER: Robin Hood
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I’m so excited to be running the TCS New York City Marathon this year for the Robin Hood Foundation. My goal is to leverage all my training to raise $5,000 so thank you so much in advance for all your support.
About the Robin Hood Foundation:
Robin Hood is New York's largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods.
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.
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. Here's 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.
