In the last few days of 2011, Robin Hood is reflecting upon the many great moments this past year. Starting today, we’ll countdown to 2012 with daily posts that celebrate the hard work and dedication of the Robin Hood community to helping New Yorkers in need.
#1 - Race for Robin Hood
Is there a better analogy for fighting poverty in New York City than climbing one of the tallest mountains in the world or running 26.2 miles or hiking the entire Appalachian Trail? Like the Robin Hood Endurance Team, Team Robin Hood marathon runners and Robin Hood family member Kyle Macrae demonstrated this year, poverty may be a difficult battle but it’s one we can win.
To cap off an epic weekend of concerts, Robin Hood joined Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and more to wish Sting a Happy 60th Birthday. He gave us the presents though, with an awesome concert to benefit our organization.
