BENEFITING: Innocence Project

ORGANIZER: Innocence Project

EVENT: 2014 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014

Calvin Hendryx-Parker

THE STORY:

100% of the money raised goes directly to the Innocence Project (minus minmal the crowdrise fees), I've paid my race fees and expenses plus donated myself to this cause.

For those of you that know me, running is a passion and so is our company Six Feet Up. Many of you may not know that the Innocence Project is actually a client of Six Feet Up and we work to help them raise the funds needed to deliver on their challenging goal.

This will be my first marathon and I want to make the NYC marathon and the Innocence Project proud by helping them prevent injustice and correct those that have been wrongfully convicted.

The stats below speak for themselves:

316 People in the U.S. Have Been Exonerated by DNA

Facts on post-conviction DNA exonerations:                               

  • The first DNA exoneration took place in 1989. Exonerations have been won in 36 states and the District of Columbia; since 2000, there have been 247 exonerations.
  • 18 of the 316 people exonerated through DNA served time on death row. Another 16 were charged with capital crimes but not sentenced to death.
  • The average length of time served by exonerees is 13.5 years. The total number of years served is 4,206.
  • The average age of exonerees at the time of their wrongful convictions was 27.
  • In more than 25% of cases in a National Institute of Justice study, suspects were excluded once DNA testing was conducted during the criminal investigation.
  • 69% of the people exonerated through DNA testing have been financially compensated. 37 states, the federal government, and the District of Columbia have passed laws to compensate people who were wrongfully incarcerated.
  • An Innocence Project review of closed cases from 2004-2010 revealed that 22% of cases were closed because of lost or destroyed evidence.
  • The true suspects and/or perpetrators have been identified in 153 (or 49%) of DNA exoneration cases.
