As life clicks back to normal, easy to forget there are still neighbors suffering from the wrath of Sandy. It will take a long time and lots of pain for these communities to get back online.

The Madhattan is a test of endurance and strength to run around the circumference of Manhattan in New York - to complete Manhattan's first ultramarathon. It requires a certain level of fitness to complete but also a certain level of craziness to put the mind and body to the ultimate test. Most importantly it is about having fun and doing good in the community.The Madhattan is dedicating money raised to two charities: the World Education and Development Fund and the Robin Hood Foundation.This team is focused on the Robin Hood Foundation.
The Robin Hood Foundation is a New York dedicated charity not only dedicated to fighting poverty in New York but also is making a huge effort in the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
