Anderson, the model actress who made a name for herself running on a beach in Baywatch, is hoping to help raise at least $500,000 for Sean Penn’s J/P HRO with the help of her fans.
“I’m running the New York Marathon this year and raising funs for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. (Can you believe it?). Together, I hope we can raise at least $500,000 and make a huge impact in this magical country,” Anderson writes on her official J/P HRO profile.
Anderson will be participating in the Marathon, which is scheduled for Nov. 3, with five of Haiti’s top ranking athletes. It will be their first U.S. marathon.
“I recently returned from my second trip to Haiti. I was amazed at how far J/P has come. How they have relocated almost all of the tent camp families. How they have removed the debilitating rubble from the streets when no one else would…J/P HRO is a successful formula…there to stay…A blessing to Haiti,” Anderson writes.
This is not the first time Anderson has publicly supported J/P Haitian Relief Organization. In 2012, Anderson put her 2007 Range Rover on eBay with proceeds going to the charity.
