FATHER-AND-SON ACTORS MARTIN SHEEN AND EMILIO ESTEVEZ POUNDED THE PAVEMENT IN LOS ANGELES TO HELP THE HOMELESS FIND SHELTER. THE TWO CELEBRITIES WERE JOINED BY MORE THAN 100 RECOVERING DRUG ADDICTS FROM SKID ROW IN SATURDAY'S THIRD-ANNUAL RUN FOR THE HOMELESS IN GRIFFITH PARK. "I'M SO PROUD OF MYSELF BECAUSE I THOUGHT ABOUT QUITTING OR CHEATING BY TRIPPING SOMEBODY NEAR ME DURING THE RACE," SAID BETTY WRIGHT, 25, WHO FINISHED NEXT TO LAST AMONG THE GROUP OF SKID ROW RUNNERS. "BUT I FIGURED IF I COULD DO THIS HONESTLY, I CAN DO ANYTHING." MORE THAN 1,000 PARTICIPATED IN THE FIVE-KILOMETER RUN, RAISING MORE THAN $100,000, SPONSORS SAID. THE EVENT BENEFITED CHRYSALIS, A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT FINDS JOBS AND SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS.
