229% Raised of $5,000 Goal
Welcome to my 2013 marathon page! I am honored to be running the NYC Marathon for Robin Hood (http://www.robinhood.org) on November 3rd, 2013!!! I completed my first marathon in Los Angeles in March, but my ultimate goal is to cross the Central Park finish line in my home town. When the marathon was cancelled last year it motivated me more as a runner and supporter of Robin Hood. I am 1 of 100 runners who will be part of the Robin Hood Team and will be trying to raise at least $10,000. There are close to 2 million people in New York living in poverty and Robin Hood gives back by supporting and developing organizations that provide direct services to poor New Yorkers. Thanks for your support! -Brett
