I doubt she’ll wear her famous red bikini from Baywatch, but star Pam Anderson is planning on running in the New York marathon in November. She said she likes to do things people think she can’t do so she’s training with a trainer to get ready to run the marathon.

She’s not running only to prove she can do it, she’s running for charity, too. She hopes to raise $500,000 the J/P Haitian Relief Organization headed up by Sean Penn. Originally the charity wanted her to hug elite runners crossing the finish line but Pam want to go one better and decided run the 26.2 mile marathon.

This will be a big challenge for her considering she has never been a runner, like Pam says, ‘I’ve never even run across the street before’.
