Pamela Anderson was among the celebrities running in Sunday’s ING New York City Marathon.
The Baywatch television star and model, who ran her first marathon with her newly shorn blonde hair hidden in a blue baseball cap, finished the race for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, a non-profit organization founded by the actor Sean Penn.
“So proud of my brother Gerry,” she wrote on Twitter. “Thank G. For running next to me today- love you lots.”
Anderson raised nearly $76,000, according to her fundraising page, for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, which aims to save lives and bring sustainable programs to the impoverished Caribbean nation devastated by the 2010 earthquake.
A record 50,740 runners started in Sunday’s New York City Marathon, rubbing shoulders with a handful of celebrities.
Supermodel Christy Turlington Burns, Bill Rancic and The Conjuring’s Patrick Wilson were among the celebrities wearing their running shoes along with Anderson.
