Fighting Poverty in 26.2-miles
March 19, 2017
Currently, over 1.8-million people in New York City are living under the poverty line, 150k of which are children under the age of five. More often than not, these individuals lack the resources to improve their lives due to health issues and troublesome homes. For over 28-years, the Robin Hood Foundation has fought poverty in New York City.
For the children that live in this state, Robin Hood partners with high-quality preschools, along with intensive therapeutic programs to give these children the strongest advantage possible. I, along with others who have interacted with these individuals, have witnessed first hand the impact these resources have on improving these lives.
On November 5, I will run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, passing New Yorkers your contributions have helped along the way. It is in this case, that I am asking for donations of $26.20 - each dollar you donate will represent one mile I am running to improve these individual's lives.
100% of your donation will provide New York’s neediest citizens with access to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, and job training programs - tools that ultimately help take them off the streets and out of poverty.
