Edward Norton is awesome and loves doing things for his fellow man and environment.
He ran the NYC marathon for Charity a few years ago with 29 other runners and raised more than a million dollars for Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. This year, he isn't running, but has 10 people to run for him — each have pledged to raise $6,000+ dollars for the same cause.
Norton, although not running in the marathon, will still be in the Big Apple to see his runners tackle the marathon. He has invited the 10 fitness fans that signed up to participate on his behalf to a meal before the race. Each fan has pledged to raise at least $6,000 for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.
Fans of the Fight Club star who donate to any of MWCT’s runners have been promised a T-Shirt by the star.
Hope it all goes well!
The money is going to a great place!
Keep it up, Edward!
