Dear Friends and Family,
Welcome to my personal Robin Hood homepage! I am pleased to raise money on behalf of such a worthy charity. There is more information on the specifics of Robin Hood below, but let me tell you why Robin Hood and running the NYC Marathon are important to me.
For quite some time, since college really, I have been an avid runner. I enjoy going for runs on the weekend, come rain, snow or shine, bitter cold or uncomfortable heat, I have made it my business to run. I find it as my way of clearing my head and collecting my thoughts and gathering my visions and dreams. As I have begun to run longer distances, 8, 9 miles at a time, I decided that there is no better moment for me to accomplish a years-old goal of mine: running a marathon. As my mom would say, I am not getting any younger. :)
Robin Hood is the perfect organization for me to represent in the marathon, as I feel Robin Hood and its many constituencies share my values of empowerment, innovation and helping those most in need. I was put in touch with Robin Hood by a colleague of mine at D. E. Shaw who currently sits on the Board of Directors. Through this introduction, I was able to meet and form relationships with several Robin Hood staff members. The passion that these individuals exude matches my passion to make a difference in the lives of New Yorkers, particularly where education is concerned (a dear cause to me). Every dollar of money raised will go directly to the worthy grantees and assistance programs that Robin Hood offers to fight poverty, educate and provide job training assistance. I thank you very much for your support on behalf of myself and Robin Hood!
