Bill Rancic participated in yesterday New York City Marathon, beginning at the tail end of the pack and earning a dollar for every person he passed. Color us impressed, for it looks like the Giuliana & Bill star zipped past over 30,000 runners! Wow!
New York City enjoyed the presence of quite a few celebrities during yesterday’s NYC Marathon. Included among the runners were such big names as Pamela Anderson, Christy Turlington, and, of course, avid runner Bill Rancic.
Bill Rancic’s mission involved not only finishing the marathon in a respectable amount of time, but also passing up tens of thousands of runners. This was all in the name of charity, for Timex Sports had previously promised to donate a dollar for every runner Bill managed to pass. Bill Rancic’s initial goal? To earn $25,000 for Giuliana’s charity, Fab-U-Wish.
Turns out, Bill wound up fulfilling his monetary goal, and then some. The exact numbers had not been calculated at the time he finished the marathon, but it was obvious that the reality star had earned quite a bit for his wife’s charity. Still, as of this morning, Bill was most anxious to hear whether he had surpassed the $25,000 goal. When he finally heard the results, he was quick to spread the word on Twitter. “Got the official word. I’m thrilled to have raised 30k for my wife’s charity @FabUWish at @INGNYC.”
$30,000…not bad! Congrats to Bill Rancic on his marathon and charity success!
