EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Thank You So Much. Really.
I am so excited to be part of the Robin Hood Team and proud to run thru the miles of my first marathon for such a great cause.
Rest assured that 100% of every Dollar you donate will be used to fund Robin Hood’s relentless fight against poverty.
With your help, Robin Hood works to level the playing field of opportunity by investing in early childhood / youth education and job training programs.
Since 1988, Robin Hood has funded poverty fighting programs by applying sound investment principles to philanthropy. It helps the best charitable programs save lives and change fates by focussing on poverty prevention through education assistance and skill training. Please help support this mission to fight poverty.
Just look at how far your donation can go:
- $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 micro-loan 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.
Lastly, on race day, November 1, we invite you to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends as we cheer these real-life heroes on at Mile 20 in the Bronx.
