Tall, handsome, successful, and featured on People Magazine‘s list of the 50 Most Beautiful People, actor Josh Duhamel might be many a woman’s first choice for a romantic stroll along the beach. But what about a two-mile run along the beach?
Duhamel, who has starred in such films as “Transformers,” “Win A Date With Tad Hamilton,” and “When in Rome,” is organizing a charity run along Santa Monica Beach in order to raise funds for Japan following the earthquake and tsunami. Duhamel wrote on his website, “If you’re like me, you’ve seen the pain and suffering going on in Japan right now, and really feel the need to help, to physically help – to actually Do Something. Well, we can!”
The cost per entry for the run will be $10, with proceeds going toward tsunami relief in Japan. Duhamel organized a similar run to benefit Haiti after the devastating earthquake there, so the parameters are likely to be the same this time around: the run will be two miles along Santa Monica beach, and proceeds will go through the Red Cross.
Duhamel and his wife Fergie (singer for the Black Eyed Peas) have both contributed to a number of charities in the past. Duhamel has spoken out for polar bears and supported the Pat Tillman Foundation through GQ, while Fergie has contributed to a number of charity albums and singles.
Sign-up for the run hasn’t begun quite yet as the run is still in the planning stage, but we’ll keep you updated in case anyone is in the Santa Monica area and feels like taking a jog with Josh!
