EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Thank you so much for your support.
This Sunday, November 1st, will mark the third year in a row that I run the NYC Marathon with Team Robin Hood. I am thrilled to raise money on behalf of such an outstanding cause.
Robin Hood is dedicated to ending poverty in New York City, where each day, 1.4 million residents rely on emergency food and shelter.
Last year alone, Robin Hood invested $132 million in more than 210 of the most effective poverty-fighting programs in the City.
- 92% of people who enter a Robin Hood-funded housing program do not return to shelters.
- Robin Hood increases the chances of passing the GED by 75% for its program participants.
- Robin Hood's job training programs are 2x as effective as others, yielding higher salaries and job retention rates.
Former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, recently said about Robin Rood, "There is literally no foundation that is more effective."
I am very thankful for your contribution.
