TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY!
November 05, 2016
BENEFITING: Robin Hood
ORGANIZER: Robin Hood
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm officially running my first marathon in New York City on behalf of the Robin Hood Foundation! This organization was established in 1988 and fights to eradicate poverty in New York City. It seeks to accomplish that mission by supporting schools like KIPP NYC College Prep in the South Bronx, which is where I've worked for the past two years.
Three years ago my school moved into a beautiful building in the South Bronx. As a result, my students have had opportunities equivalent to my suburban experience. Students have been afforded endless options such as an array of athletics, ballet barre classes, a host of AP courses, summer and college trips. These examples offer only a glimpse of the difference the Robin Hood Foundation has made on my students.
While I am nervous and excited (maybe even a little bit scared), my high school students are a constant reminder that I will be able to cross that finish line. I've pledged to raise $2,000 for this organization, but I can't do it without your help. Please help my students continue to realize their dreams and reach their full potential - I want to prove to them that life is like a marathon and with determination, true grit and a support system like the Robin Hood Foundation you can make the improbable possible.
Thanks for helping us cross the finish line!
Love - Taylor
