Ethan Hawke to Run the New York City Marathon

The actor is raising money for The Doe Fund.

Actor Ethan Hawke, who’s starred in films such as Training Day and Boyhood, will be running the New York City Marathon this year.

Hawke will run alongside his wife, Ryan, and raise money for The Doe Fund, a nonprofit which aims to develop programs that meet the needs of a diverse population working to break the cycles of homelessness, addiction, and criminal recidivism.

“Ryan and I are both feeling daunted and terrified about taking on the TCS New York City Marathon,” Ethan said. “But fortune favors the bold, right? We are of course excited, too!  We hope it’s going to be a great day for all the runners, and know that running the race on behalf of The Doe Fund will raise awareness to help many deserving people achieve their own personal success and stability.”

Those who wish to donate to The Doe Fund and support Ethan and Ryan on their journey, can visit their fundraising page.

The New York City Marathon is on Nov. 1.
