THE STORY:

 

Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

I will be running The NYC Marathon on November 4th, 2012, once again for the Robin Hood foundation.  This charity does a great job of providing support for those in NY City through special programs geared to empower, educate and comfort those in severe poverty.  Their programs are provided efficiently as much of the overhead is paid for by the board of directors of the foundation.  I particularly like the fact that their due dilligence on target programs require business like measurement of efficacy.  Their work makes these programs better!

If you are interested in donating, any amount would be great.  Jasbeena and I have already covered my entry minimum with our personal donation.  Thanks for your support and you can track my race on line by going to the ING NYC Marathon web site on race day and using my Bib #43259 .... look for the link for tracking runners. 

Warm Regards,

Ralph

For the past 5 years, more than 650 Robin Hood runners have crossed the finish line of the ING New York City Marathon. Along the way, these runners have raised nearly $4 million for Robin Hood, helping to feed, shelter and heal our neighbors in need, as well as equipping them with educational and employment opportunities to improve their lives.

This year 100 runners will participate in the marathon as part of Team Robin Hood. Each runner has personally committed to raising $5,000; 100% of which will go to help New Yorkers in need build better lives for themselves and their families.

On race day, November 4, we invite you to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends at our famous Mile-20 block party (just off the 6-train). Cheer your favorite runners on their final leg of the race while rocking out to DJ Bonnie! This big bash also includes a Jumbotron featuring all 45,000+ runners in their glory as they turn off the Willis Avenue Bridge, bleacher seating, Robin Hood t-shirts and cheer-stix.

Please help support these runners and their mission to fight poverty. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or make a general donation in support of the entire Robin Hood team. Look what your support can help do for the city of New York:

  • $50 covers the daily wage for one formerly homeless man to participate on a work crew assignment that prepares him for full-time employment.
  • $75 provides a day of high quality preschool for one child.
  • $100 connects one low-income family to public benefits, social services, and employment counseling.
  • $200 helps a woman secure a $1,500 microloan to help her launch or expand her own business.
  • $750 provides a year of basic literacy training and G.E.D. test preparation for one student.
  • $1000 pays for health care for one adolescent for one year.
  • $1,500 provides a year of counseling for the family of a child enrolled in pre-school.
  • $3,000 provides six months of psychiatric treatment for a homeless person.

When you race for ROBIN HOOD, you support 200 poverty-fighting schools and programs in all five boroughs. During the race, you will pass through the neighborhoods of ten Robin Hood funded programs. Click here to view the map.
