Pamela Anderson - Pamela Anderson To Run New York Marathon

Pamela Anderson will be running in this year's (13) New York City Marathon.

The busty former Baywatch babe is currently in training for the big run after signing up to pound the streets of the Big Apple and raise funds for Sean Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

She tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, "I've never taken on a physical challenge like this but I am willing to do something to show my dedication. It is incomparable to the struggle people (there) face. I didn't just want to be the kiss at the finish line. I wanted to do more and if I can raise $500,000, it is going to be a blessing to Haiti.

"I've been a supporter of Jp from the early stages. In the last few years I have become more involved. If you go to Haiti, you fall in love. It is intoxicating."

She adds, "I have worked to defend animal rights and environmental warriors for decades... and Haiti has been mostly deforested, sadly, which affects wildlife and people. It is vulnerable. I really believe Haiti might be the heart of the world."

Anderson will join five Haitian marathon runners as part of J/P Hro’s The Long Run for Haiti campaign - the athletes, Astrel Clovis, Petrus Cesarion, Jean MACksony, Bertine Laine, and Carline Lamour will all be making their first-ever visits to the United States when they take part in the marathon alongside the actress/model.

Penn set up the J/P Haitian Relief Organization in the wake of an earthquake, which devastated the nation and left thousands homeless in 2010.
