BENEFITING: Robin Hood
ORGANIZER: Robin Hood
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am incredibly excited to represent and raise money for The Robin Hood Foundation. The Robin Hood Foundation is an incredible organization that grants thousands of dollars to organizations that are on the front line of battling poverty in New York City, including my own school network KIPP NYC! The Robin Hood foundation has been incredibly supportive of the work we've done at KIPP and was a major contributor to the construction of KIPP NYC College Prep High School in the Bronx, a school that serves low-income students and just sent 98% of it seniors to college! I am incredibly proud to be a part of the KIPP Team & Family and so thankful for all the support that we have recieved from The Robin Hood Foundation over the years. Please consider donating to this incredibly cause, and feel free to read more about the foundation below:
Robin Hood is proud to participate in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. Our team of 100 runners will commit to training and raising money with the promise that 100% of every dollar will be used for Robin Hood’s relentless fight against poverty. It’s no small thing: to date, Race for Robin Hood has raised over $6 million dollars to aid poverty-fighting efforts.
On race day, November 6, 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.
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 feeds a family of three for a week.
- $100 provides one night of safe shelter for a family.
- $360 provides a single immigrant mother with a microloan to start her own business.
- $450 provides immigrant students with a college counselor to help prepare applications for schools, scholarships, and financial aid.
