THE STORY:

Friends and Family - 

THANK YOU in advance for all of your support!  For the first time since moving to New York City in 2008, I'm going to be running the NYC Marathon and I couldn't be more excited.  Breaking my ankle two years ago caused me to take a break from marathoning, but I'm eager to get back out on the course for my eighth marathon and I couldn't be happier to run in support of such a powerful organization - The Robin Hood Foundation.

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. 

Closer to my heart, though, is the work that The Robin Hood Foundation does in supporting Uncommon Schools.  As most of you know, three years ago I was given the awesome opportunity to become the founding principal of a middle school in Brownsville, Brooklyn - Leadership Prep Ocean Hill Charter School - a member of the Uncommon Schools network of charter schools in the Northeast.  Since our founding in 2013, our school has grown to serve over 270 middle school students and their families in grades 5-7.  We have an amazing staff of devoted teachers, social workers, counselors, and office staff, and we think we're doing pretty great work on behalf of our students and their families.  We're able to do this great work because we benefit greatly from the resource and material support offered to all Uncommon Schools by Robin Hood.

So please take a moment and give what you can in support of the students and familes served by the great work that Robin Hood is doing throughout New York City (but especially in Leadership Prep Ocean Hill Middle Academy's little corner of Brownsville!).  We would seriously appreciate it!

And if you're still not convinced, 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 on all the runners who are racing at Mile 20 in the Bronx.

Thank you again!
