THE STORY:

Committed to run the New York Marathon in November 2016 for the brilliant, Robin Hood Foundation.  My Personal Reasons for doing so:

  1. Incredibly inspired by the fantastic work and huge support the Robin Foundation provide to the impoverished of NYC (see below for more details on what they do with funds raised).
     
  2. Promised one of my very best friend's, who tragically passed away last year, that I would run this Marathon within in either 2016 or 2017. Fullfilling that promise! 
     
  3. As a former New Yorker myself, the Big Apple, means a great deal to me and want to do something to give back to it in a unique way as this. 
     
  4. As a competitive person I want to beat my London Marathon time from 2007 of 3hrs 40mins plain and simple. #olderbutwiser

       
Funding Raising Goal:                  Raise $5,000 for RH Foundation. 

Personal Goals:                             Go sub 3hrs 30mins.

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.

- $1000 provides regular asthma treatment to a child, so they can take fewer sick days from school.
