End poverty. Start with your neighbor.  See more
Francesco Presutti

THE STORY:

 

I thought it'd be a one-off fundraiser. I joined Team Robin Hood for my 7th New York City Marathon last year. I saw how many people around me were in need of help in this ultra-rich city where I live, New York. And I saw how much Robin Hood was doing to alleviate their suffering. So many responded generosly to this call. It made me really proud.

 

Why do it again this year for my 8th New York City Marathon? We hear the economy of the city is recovering. Is poverty still a problem? I had never fundraised for the same charity more than once. I was hesitating. Until I read a shocking piece of news in the New York Times. The emergency is still here. According to the newly released census figures, the income gap in New York, which is already almost the widest in the US and rivals disparities in sub-Saharan Africa, is widening even further. Nearly 1.7 million city residents are classified as poor. The poverty rate has increased. Our most vulnerable neighbors are far from a recovery.
