After Second Earthquake In Nepal, actor Josh Duhamel Rallies For A Relief Run by Christine Peake
Duhamel, known for his charitable work as well as block buster movies and TV shows is stepping up to the plate, again. He is hastily preparing for 2k run/walk that will be held at the Santa Monica Beach in California on Sunday, May 17th.
Duhamel has already spear headed 2 hugely successfull runs in the past and has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the similar tragedies in Haiti and Japan. he was joined by his wife, Fergie, Molly Simms, GLEE cast and many other kind hearted friends.
This time around he has partnered with the charity www.ThisTimeFoundation.Org and the funds are going to be used to send much needed doctors to Nepal and help rebuild schools.
The number of lives lost in the first quake has heartbreakingly surpassed 8000 in casualties and many still remain missing. The more recent quake left
as many as 66 people from Nepal, India and Chinese Tibet dead and over 1100 people injured. Both estimates are expected to climb as hard-hit rural villages contact officials.The quake has caused landslides, and residents are already worried and preparing for the upcoming monsoon season from June to September, which in all likelihood could bring more.
Families are sleeping in tents, rubble and in pipes outside as they are terrified that there may be aftershocks causing more loss of life. Aid is needed to help these poor people, and Duhamel's run/walk will help provide some of the aid these desperate people need.
Duhamel has already recorded a PSA for Nepal in which he said, "They are a kind people, gentle in spirit. But at this moment, hundreds of thousands injured people in Nepal need your kindness. Help us send the doctors and medical supplies to stop the suffering. And show them we’re with them in spirit."
To help Nepal and join Josh, go to www.ThisTimeFoundation.Org to register or register on the day at
Santa Monica Beach,
Lot#1, 2600 Barnard Way.
All ages are welcome, the walk/run is only 1 mile to the Santa Monica Pier, but it only takes a few steps to go a long long way to help the people of Nepal.
