Pamela Anderson to run in New York City marathon for Haitian charity

Demonstrating her desire to be a part of the solution to Haiti's dire circumstance as the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, still reeling from the effects of 2010's earthquake, former star of Baywatch and one of the most iconic faces and names in popular culture, Pamela Anderson announced, in the same way all new high-profile bits of information gets released nowadays, via twitter, that she will be running in the New York Marathon this year, hoping to raise funds to benefit the Caribbean country.


The charity the actress, model, and mom wishes to raise money for is the J/P Relief Organization, the darling of her friend and associate, actor, Sean Penn, whose own interest in Haiti and its relief since the earthquake has been well documented. At last count, she'd raised nearly $8,500, but, with a benchmark of $500,000, the former wife of rocker, Tommy Lee, has a mountain to surmount in time for the marathon.

Promising to give updates on her training, as well as information on other races she'll be running in up to the November 3rd date of one of the world's most famous marathons, Anderson is hoping the social media avenues of Twitter and Facebook will help her and the Haitian Relief Organization raise the funds to help, what she describes as a 'magical country'.

Having already given of herself in a visit to Haiti in 2010, following the devastation, Anderson said her wish to help stems from her experience as a witness of the poverty of the people in a country whose rich culture should have ensured its wealth.
