BENEFITING: Robin Hood

ORGANIZER: Robin Hood

EVENT: 2014 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014

Andy Wright

THE STORY:

After 7 years, I'm back on the trail to catch 26.2 miles and fulfill a dream of finishing the NYC Marathon.  Fundraising $1000 earns me a race bib and the privilege of  sweating across all 5 boroughs.  That's where you come in!

I'm thrilled to be raising money for the Robin Hood Foundation, the standard-bearing charity in fighting poverty in New York City. On top of all the wonderful causes they've contributed to over the years, Robin Hood supports Uncommon Schools, and actually funded the beautiful facility where hundreds of students go to high school, and where I work every day. These guys are the real deal.

 

Here's the full scoop on Robin Hood:

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 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.
