Actress Pamela Anderson announced plans to run the ING New York City Marathon to help out a good cause.
Anderson tweeted on Sunday, "I'm running the New York Marathon this year and raising funds for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization,” which aims to save lives and bring sustainable programs to the Haiti following the earthquake of 2010.
The actress then adds a list of reasons why she's supporting Haiti.
"Poorest Country in the Western Hemisphere. Just a one-hour flight from Miami. How are we not more involved? Desperate need for things we take for granted – clean water, safe school structures, medical facilities, emergency rooms, reforestation possibilities – conservation, education. Organic products allowed into Free trade market (mangoes, coffee, vanilla, vegetables). The opportunities are endless."
The NYC Marathon takes place November 3.
