THE STORY:

 

Friends & Family--

I have exciting news! I will be one of 45,000 runners participating in the ING NYC Marathon this November. I will run the 26.2 miles with Team Robin Hood in order to help fight poverty in New York City.  I have personally committed to raise $5,000, 100% of which will provide New Yorkers-in-need the help to build better lives for themselves and their families. I write you in hopes that you can support me in this amazing cause. Whether it's a monetary donation or your encouragement along the race route, I will greatly appreciate anything you can do. This will be my second time running the marathon for Robin Hood and I cannot adequately express how honored I feel to race for such a great cause.

Look what your support can help do for the city of New York:

$50 provides a day of preschool and mental-health services for a child with special needs.

$65 pays for an intensive 2.5-hour Saturday morning mentoring and tutoring session.

$200 provides a low-income New Yorker free health care at a neighborhood clinic.

$220 pays for a day of training to become a home health attendant, a job that pays $21,000 a year.

$250 pays for a half-day of training for an unemployed New Yorker to become a commercial truck driver.

$280 enrolls 140 low-income families in public health insurance.

$400 provides six months of psychiatric treatment for a homeless person.

$750 pays for a social worker to provide parenting, education and counseling to one low-income family for a year.

$1,000 pays for screening and diagnosis for cancer.

$1,300 pays for a year of treatment and aid for a child with asthma, reducing school absenteeism by 70% and hospitalization by 100%.

A BIG thank you,

Nichole
