For the past 5 years, more than 650 Robin Hood runners have crossed the finish line of the ING New York City Marathon. Along the way, these runners have raised nearly $4 million for Robin Hood, helping to feed, shelter and heal our neighbors in need, as well as equipping them with educational and employment opportunities to improve their lives.

This year 35 athletes will participate in the New York City's first Ironman race, the 2012 Ironamn U.S. Championship as part of Team Robin Hood. Each athletes has personally committed to raising nearly $6,000; 100% of which will go to help New Yorkers in need build better lives for themselves and their families.

The 140.6-mile race will take place in parts of both New York City and New Jersey, making it the most metropolitan environment ever to host an Ironman. The course will include a 2.4-mile swim in the Hudson River; a 112-mile bike ride on the Palisades Parkway in Bergen and Rockland Counties; and a 26.2-mile run beginning in Fort Lee, New Jersey and finishing in Riverside Park in Manhattan.

Please help support these athletes and their mission to fight poverty. You can make a donation in support of a particular athlete or make a general donation in support of the entire Robin Hood team. Look what your support can help do for the city of New York:

  • $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 provides a day of high quality preschool for one child.
  • $100 connects one low-income family to public benefits, social services, and employment counseling.
  • $200 helps a woman secure a $1,500 microloan to help her launch or expand her own business.
  • $750 provides a year of basic literacy training and G.E.D. test preparation for one student.
  • $1000 pays for health care for one adolescent for one year.
  • $1,500 provides a year of counseling for the family of a child enrolled in pre-school.
  • $3,000 provides six months of psychiatric treatment for a homeless person.
