Ethan Hawke to run NYC Marathon with wife for charity

NEW YORK (AP) Actor Ethan Hawke will run his first marathon next month to raise money for charity.

Hawke said Wednesday he and his wife will take part in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 1 to support The Doe Fund, which works to break the cycles of homelessness, addiction and criminal recidivism.

It will be the first 26.2-mile race for both Ethan and Ryan Hawke. The Academy Award-nominated actor says that ''Ryan and I are both feeling daunted and terrified'' but ''are of course excited, too.''
