THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family

On November 2, I am running the New York City marathon to raise money for the 1.7 million New Yorkers who live in poverty. I’m honored to do this through the Robin Hood Foundation, whose sole mission is to target poverty in NYC. I’m running for the one in five New Yorkers who rely on emergency food, the 56,000 people who will sleep in a shelter tonight and the one in three children who live in poverty in this great city. Your support will motivate me through the 26th mile and provide much needed assistance to our neighbors in need.

Today I mapped my run to spell Robin Hood. For a $200 donation, I will spell out any word you choose (James and Mike, this is your chance. Read: any word) .  

With love and gratitude,

Cecelia

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.
