Pamela Anderson to run NY marathon for Haiti group

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Hollywood celebrity Pamela Anderson is running in the New York City Marathon to support fellow actor Sean Penn’s humanitarian group in Haiti.

Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization said Wednesday that the actress will be part of the group’s fundraising team that will take five Haitian distance runners to compete in the Nov. 3 race.

The money raised will go toward operating funds for the humanitarian group, which has helped shelter some of the people displaced by Haiti’s earthquake in 2010.

Penn later became an ambassador-at-large for Haiti because of his humanitarian work.
