Of the 43,741 people who ran the New York City Marathon on Sunday, a handful stood out, both for having claims to fame and for their reasons for running.
Alanis Morrissette, former ER doc Anthony Edwards, The Incredible Hulk's Edward Norton and Christopher Reeve's son Matthew battled through the sweat and determination on the streets of the Big Apple, all for a good cause.
"It was such a thrill but I'm burnt," Edwards told PEOPLE moments after crossing the finish line. "I'm totally tired! But that's the point. I'm just so happy that I finished. But tomorrow I'm going to feel happier."

In the aftermath of the accident that left him paralyzed, Christopher Reeve and his family found a new way to love that didn't rely on physical affection, two of his grown children said Tuesday.
"We quickly learned that being a family isn't about the physical connections," Alexandra Reeve, 23, said on Good Morning America. "It's not about the hugs. For us, it wasn't about the physical activities, even though they'd been so much a part of our family life for so long. We realized that a family can still be there for one another just by voices, by loving one another and by sharing moments together. And physical ability isn't a requisite for that."
