Carmen Electra went to the dogs for charity last Saturday.
The 36-year-old model and actress co-hosted the Bark for The Cure Fun Run/Walk in Los Angeles’ Griffiths Park to raise money for canine cancer research and the Los Angeles Parks Foundation.
The event was organized by the Fresh Pet Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping our closest companions lead long, healthy and disease-free lives, whose aim is to support canine nutritional research in the areas of prevention, care and treatment of diseases in dogs. Electra – a self-confessed animal lover – joined co-hosts Tamar Geller and Candy Spelling for the 5 kilometer run around the park and the canine celebration that followed.
Electra – whose mother died of a brain tumor in 1998 – is well known for her charity work, especially her work with Head To Hollywood, which brings people suffering from brain cancer to Hollywood for a red carpet experience.
