Team Robin Hood - NYC Marathon 2017

BENEFITING: Robin Hood

ORGANIZER: Robin Hood

EVENT: 2017 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

Wes Moore

THE STORY:

 I’ve been training for this marathon since I became CEO of Robin Hood in June. Team Robin Hood has raised $7 million to combat poverty in New York City, and I wanted to be a part of that effort.  

I have very flat feet, I have arthritis in my ankles, I’ve had knee surgeries from being an Army Paratrooper.  When I told my doctor that I was going to run this marathon, he said he would have almost preferred I told him I started smoking! 

So, that’s the problem. Another problem is that I said I’m going to do it, so that’s what I’m going to do.  And yet another other problem is that there are 1.8 million people living in poverty in New York City, so I have to run for them. I have to fight for them.  

And Robin Hood's impact for people in poverty is not limited to New York City   — these problems are not unique, and the programs we fuel have been exported across the nation. 

Thank you for standing with me, thank you for supporting me and please consider donating to help Robin Hood fight poverty. 

100% of your donation will go to fighting poverty, and just look what your donation support can do! 

- $50 covers the daily wage for one formerly homeless man to participate on a work crew assignment that prepares him for full-time employment. 

- $75 feeds a family of three for a week.  

- $100 provides one night of safe shelter for a family. 

-  $360 provides a single immigrant mother with a microloan to start her own business. 

-  $450 provides immigrant students with a college counselor to help prepare applications for schools, scholarships, and financial aid. 

- $1000 provides regular asthma treatment to a child, so they can take fewer sick days from school.
