Run for SCOPE

On Sunday, November 5, 2023 Team SCOPE ran all 26.2 miles of the NYC Marathon across the 5 boroughs while making a difference and being cheered on by SCOPE supporters along the way. Together, $30,000 was raised; 20 more children whose families otherwise could not afford it, are going to overnight summer camp next summer because of our amazing accomplishment. THANK YOU!

Hayley (Garfinkel) Eisbrouch

Hayley is excited to be running her very first marathon in support of SCOPE! She is a proud member of the SCOPE Associate Board and has spent over 20+ summers at sleep away camp. While not at camp in the summer months, Hayley lives in the West Village, NYC with her husband, Andrew. They love to explore the best restaurants in the neighborhood and take walks along the West Side Highway with their puppy, Rudi! 

Hayley and her family have owned and operated Camp Lindenmere in the Poconos, PA for the last 17 years. Since moving to NYC, Hayley has always dreamed of running the NYC marathon, being inspired by her parents who have both run the NYC marathon, with a combined total of 14 marathons. She is excited to take on this challenge, in an effort to provide children from underserved communities with life-changing opportunities through the experience of summer camp.


Robbie Gothelf 

Robbie AKA Robbie Fuego was born and raised in Montville, NJ and went to Timber Lake Camp for 23 years.  He then met his wife, Hayley, and made the switch over to Camp Starlight where he’s about to begin his 2nd summer as the Associate Director working alongside Hayley, and mother and father-in law Allison and David!  Robbie started out as a homesick camper back in 1997, but grew to love camp and eventually ended up making camp his full-time career in 2009.  Robbie has been involved with SCOPE ever since he began working in the camping industry full time back in 2009.  He was the Chair of the SCOPE Associate Board for 3 years, loves being an annual attendee at the SCOPE Dinner in NYC, and absolutely loves what SCOPE stands for.  He believes that every child should have the gift of camp! Robbie is competitive by nature, so although he isn’t expecting to win the NYC Marathon, he looks forward to starting his Running With Robbie Club this summer in his training efforts leading up to November 5th!

Hannah Lindsay

Hannah is 26 years old and from Sligo, Ireland. She works for Camp No Counselors. This will be Hannah’s very first marathon and she has the privilege of representing SCOPE.

It has always been a dream of hers to complete the New York Marathon and Hannah’s excited to begin this challenge!


Colleen McHugh

Colleen is very excited to be running this year’s New York City Marathon with her Camp IHC team mates, while raising funds for SCOPE. She has worked for IHC for over 9 years, before becoming full time Colleen spent her months away from Camp travelling the world, experiencing new things and pushing herself out of her comfort zone. This year’s marathon is no different and will be Colleen’s first ever marathon. She’s no stranger to running, having completed many 5ks and 10ks over the years including last year’s Central Park Half Marathon. Colleen’s a sporty girl at heart and cannot wait to get stuck in and help SCOPE send as many children to Camp as possible!! 

Sam Shiller

Sam (or ‘Shiller’ as she is known by her camp friends) went to Kenmont/Kenwood Camps for 6 years as a camper and then worked as a lifeguard and Division Leader for a total of 5 years! Two of her counselors from when she was a camper became involved in SCOPE, and once she moved to NYC in 2018, she quickly joined the SCOPE Associate Board. Shiller currently lives in NYC with her cat Farrah Fawcatt and loves spending her time volunteering/fostering with dogs & cats and hanging out with friends. She tends to have a lot of “pep in my step” so if you want to join Shiller for any of her training sessions, or cheer her on, please do! She looks forward to seeing you!! KWS!
