Natalia Vodianova Cheers Paris Half-Marathon

The Russian model teamed with Guerlain to raise money for charity.

RUN FOR A CAUSE: Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation team participated in Paris’ half-marathon on Sunday.

 

“Together with Guerlain, we’ve been taking the challenge of running those 21 kilometers [or about 13 miles] in Paris for five years in a row now,” said the Russian model, referring to the brand for which she's the face that’s been supporting the children’s charity.

 

The charity took part in the run to collect donations for integrative summer camps for children and young people with conditions such as autism in Russia. As of Sunday, March 2, its JustGiving.com site had raised 47,247 euros, or $65,000 at current exchange, in private donations.

 

Vodianova generally runs the half marathon herself, but this time cheered her team on at the finish line. She is expecting a child with Antoine Arnault, the son of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault. LVMH also owns Guerlain.
