Joey McIntyre and Justin Chambers run half marathon for charity
The streets of Pasadena were full of good-hearted people including actor/singer Joey McIntyre and Grey’s Anatomy star Justin Chambers yesterday. The duo, who were also joined by Justin’s co-stars Chandra Wilson and Kim Raver, and actress Kristin Renton, showed up bright and early for the inaugural “Rock n’ Roll Marathon Pasadena” held at the Rose Bowl on Sunday, February 19th, 2012.
The half marathon was created to raise awareness and funds for Cure Mito, a charity that works to fund the research and treatment of mitochondrial disease.
New Kids on the Block fans will be proud to hear our boy Joey finished the 13.1 mile race in 1:53:40.
The event attracted more than 7,000 entrants who began the race in front of the iconic Rose Bowl façade, running across the Colorado Bridge, through Old Town Pasadena, around the Brookside Golf Course, enjoying the sights of numerous scenic landmarks, including the Tournament House and the Norton Simon Museum. The event concluded with a finish line festival at the Rose Bowl with a post-race concert headlined by Sugar Ray.
