Even though football season is over, the Rose Bowl still saw some star-studded athletic action this past Sunday. “Grey’s Anatomy” co-stars Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and Kim Ravers, as well as former New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyreall spent the day at the stadium running the first ever “Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Pasadena.”

The inaugural race was organized to support Cure Mito, an organization that strives to increase awareness and research of mitochondrial disorders. Wilson’s daughter Sarina suffers from the disease, and the actress has been an outspoken advocate on her behalf.

Raver, who plays Dr. Teddy Altman on Grey’s, was quoted as saying, “Cure Mito is an amazing organization and I am so happy to be here in support of Chandra, she is such a team player on the set of Grey’s. It was really emotional crossing the finish line and the music on the course was awesome.”

The star was referring to the unique layout of the race, which included cheerleaders and live music along the course. Though this was the first race in Pasadena, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series has been around for 14 years and has races in 23 cities across the U.S., Europe, and Canada. It has attracted 75,000 runners over the years and has raised over $250 million for various charities, including the ASPCA and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The Pasadena event culminated in a post-race concert headlined by the band Sugar Ray.

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
