Friends and Family,
For a long time I couldn't say this, but now I find myself needing to say it every day: I'm a runner. I am taking responsibility for it now. And part of that responsibility means making amends for the people I've hurt and the damage I have caused as a result of this addiction. Smelly feet, sweaty clothing, and copious overeating after runs has affected not just those near and dear to me, but the city as a whole. In my love of casual 10 mile weekday treks, I was selfish and destructive, and completely oblivious to your needs and feelings. It is time to make amends to this addiction by giving back.
On November 5, 2017, I am running the TCS New York City Marathon with Robin Hood, New York City’s largest poverty-fighting organization. Robin Hood develops and funds over 200 of the most effective schools, food pantries, homeless shelters, job training centers, health facilities, legal clinics, and more. Our training team of 100 runners has committed to raising a total of $5,000 per person, with the promise that 100% of every dollar will be used for Robin Hood’s relentless fight against poverty. To date, Race for Robin Hood has raised nearly $7 million dollars to aid poverty-fighting efforts.
Please help me support Robin Hood and their mission to fight poverty. Every donation helps, no matter how small. Here’s how your support helps the city of New York:
My goal is to raise $4,000 to help fight poverty in New York City, and I can only do this with your support. Please donate via my fundraising page. Thanks in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity!
