THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends, 

For a long time it's been a burning desire of mine to run the ING NYC Marathon and finally the time has come where I am ready for the challenge both physically and mentally.  I will have a grueling 20 weeks ahead and with the love and support of you and my wonderful partner Kevin Murphy I am going to dominate this race. 

I've chosen to run with TEAM ROBINHOOD because they do a trememdous amount of work to fight poverty in NYC and I strongly believe in their approach of enriching the body and mind as well as providing opportunities for everyone to contribute and benefit from on a personal or professional level.

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, 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 and I am thilled to join the ranks of these dedicated of men and women. 

I have 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, you're invited to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends at their famous Mile-20 block party (just off the 6-train). Cheer for me on my  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 my mission to fight poverty. 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.

I hope to see you all on race day and if you're up for a run, please don't hesitate to find me .

With love, 

Stace
