Josh Duhamel To Take Part In Red Cross Beach Run December 2:

For the third year in a row, actor Josh Duhamel is teaming up with the American Red Cross to host a youth run fundraiser. The two mile beach run and jog will be held on the Santa Monica Beach next Sunday, Dec. 2.

Persons of all ages are invited to join the two mile course. Runners and joggers will assemble in beach parking lot #5 where Ocean Park Boulevard meets the beach at 2600 Barnard Way. Registration for the run opens at 9 a.m.

The run will begin at 11 a.m. Participants are asked to make a $10 donation for the American Red Cross PrepareSoCal disaster preparedness campaign.

Children under 16 are required to bring a parent or adult guardian along. Runners and joggers should wear something red to show support for the Red Cross.

Youth Run participants will run or jog a mile north to the Santa Monica Pier, then turn around and return to the starting point in parking lot #5 adjacent to the beach.

In January, 2010 and March, 2011, Duhamel led thousands of runners and raised over $200,000 for both Japanese and Haitian earthquake relief efforts. Donations collected at this year’s Youth Run will go towards the American Red Cross PrepareSoCal campaign to help Southern Californians get ready for disasters and to gather relief supplies that could be deployed in recovery efforts such as after a major earthquake.

“There is great joy in running and knowing that you’re also helping the American Red Cross prepare Southern California for disaster,” Duhamel said.

Checks and money orders should be made out to American Red Cross with “PrepareSoCal” written in the memo line. Credit cards and cash will also be accepted. For more information and to register, go to http://american.redcross.org/JoshYouthRun2012.
