I'm running the NYC Marathon in 2014 to commemorate my 20-year career anniversary with The French Laundry restaurant, located in Yountville, California (Napa Valley).
Why the NYC Marathon? For starters, NYC has always been a destination marathon that I've wanted to complete, especially after completing the Boston Marathon, my first big destination marathon, in 2006. Secondly, New York is an appropriate venue because it is home to The French Laundry's sibling restaurant, Per Se. In fact, the marathon finishes in the shadows of the restaurant windows that overlook Columbus Circle. More poigniantly, New York is also home to 1.9 million people who are living in poverty, which is why I am running as a part of Team Robin Hood and raising funds to support their mission find, fund, and create programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods.
Since its founding, Robin Hood has distributed more than $1.45 billion in grants and initiatives to hundreds of New York City-based soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job training programs, and other vital services that give New York's neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives for themselves and their families.
Plus, Robin Hood's board of directors pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100% of your donation goes directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in need.
