Those long runs on the beach finally paid off for Pamela Anderson, who put her best foot forward at Sunday’s ING New York City Marathon with her brother by her side. (And, no, the Baywatch alum didn’t reprise that iconic red suit for the race.)
“So proud of my brother Gerry,” she wrote on Twitter. “Thank G. For running next to me today- love you lots.”
Anderson, 46, announced her plans to run the five borough-spanning marathon in September. And it was more than a physical challenge: She 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.
