THE STORY:

I'm Alex - 

Those of you who know me know that running has always been something that I have enjoyed but recently it’s become a bit of an obsession – having ran almost 2,000 miles in the last year, between training and dozens of races, I feel that it’s time for me to take on the most iconic race of them all, the New York City Marathon. I am fortunate enough to be a member of the Robin Hood Foundation’s 2014 marathon team and it is my goal to raise $5,000 this year so that other New Yorkers can have the same opportunities that I have to live (and run!) in such a great city.

For the past 7 years, more than 750 Robin Hood runners have crossed the finish line of the TCS New York City Marathon. Along the way, these runners have raised nearly $5 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 100 runners will participate in the marathon as part of Team Robin Hood. Together they will train and raise funds, 100% of which will go to help New Yorkers in need build better lives for themselves and their families.

On race day, November 2, we invite you to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends at our famous Mile-20 block party (just off the 6-train). Cheer your favorite runners on their final leg of the race while rocking out to a DJ!

Please help support these runners and their mission to fight poverty. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner 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 (like Yong Suk Schwieger) 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.

Thank you and I hope to y'all along the race route on November 2nd, in not I'll be sure to post many annoying Instagram and Facebook photos for y'all to enjoy!
