Breaking Dawn Star Running an Ultra


He’s doing it for charity.

Teenage girls have yet one more reason to fall in love with Breaking Dawn’s Charlie Bewley: He’s running an ultra marathon. For those not familiar with the teen saga, Breaking Dawn is the fourth and final book of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series that is being made into a movie. The film is scheduled to be released in November.

According to his Web site, Mr. Bewley is running the ultra as part of the BMO Vancouver Half Marathon and Marathon. He’s doing it in honor of actor Joceyln Clarke, a friend of his and stand-in for Dakota Fanning in New Moon. Clarke recently lost her fight with cancer.

Proceeds from Bewley’s ultra will benefit The Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.

“Since Jocelyn has passed away, I will now be running for the money you have kindly donated to those responsible for treating her illness,” Bewley writes. “So that many others may be given the opportunity to fight as Jocelyn did.”
