EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I recently joined the Board of Directors of The HOPE Program and I’m running in the 2012 NYC Marathon to raise money for this fantastic organization. I hope you will join me in supporting The HOPE Program by donating on my 2012 NYC Marathon Crowdrise page. I will match the first $2,000 in donations.
The HOPE Program is a NYC based charity with the objective of empowering New Yorkers to achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment and advancement. HOPE provides hundreds of hours in rigorous training in literacy, math, computer skills, workplace communications, stress management, customer service, and other skills essential for career success.
During my recent visit to a HOPE classroom in Brooklyn, I was impressed with the dedication of the students and staff and the student’s desire to improve their lives by building new and valuable skills through rigorous job training.
Please join me in supporting an organization that has achieved impressive results: 72% job placement rate, Charity Navigators’ 4-star award (their highest) rating for 4 consecutive years, and Robin Hood Foundation’s Hero Award. Your gift is 100% tax deductible.
