Popular “Ted” actor Mark Wahlberg put some time aside in his busy schedule to help children in need today.
Wahlberg posted a photo holding a massive check as he and others celebrated CIBC Miracle Day. He captioned the photo on Twitter, “Amazing! Congratulations on the 37th CIBC Miracle Day, we’ve been happy to be a part of it over the years. Thanks for helping kids! #[email protected]”
CIBC Miracle Day and Mark Wahlberg
CIBC Miracle Day is an event in which celebrities and different charities all come together in order to make special miracles happen for kids everywhere. The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation is a staple at the event.
This foundation is set up to specifically help inner-city youth in New York by creating partnerships with other organizations that also specialize in improving their quality of life.
Last year, Wahlberg participated in the event virtually instead of in person at the CIBC trading floors. Whether in person or virtual, the goal of the event has never wavered.
“CIBC Miracle Day is about helping to make children’s ambitions a reality, because while so much has changed this year, children’s dreams haven’t. Our commitment to helping kids rise above remains stronger than ever and this day would not have been possible without the support of our clients. Because of them, and all who play a part in making CIBC Miracle Day happen, we are able to continue this proud giving tradition,” said Harry Culham, Group Head, CIBC Capital Markets, and Chair of the CIBC, according to Bloomberg.
Mark Wahlberg’s New Movie
Mark Wahlberg is currently working with Tom Holland for the upcoming video game adaptation film, “Uncharted.”
While it’s no secret that Wahlberg likes to stay in good shape, even “Spider-Man” himself was in awe over his co-star’s stellar physique. In a recent interview with GQ, Holland referred to his co-star as an “absolute unit.” He also said that Wahlberg inspired him to get even more in shape than he already was.
“After the [COVID] lockdown, we had five months off, and I just ate and trained and ate and trained,” Holland said. In fact, Holland also posted a photo in July 2020 standing in front of a mirror flexing his abs.
He wrote, “When working with @markwahlberg you gotta get after it!”
When it comes to a workout regime, Wahlberg is considered one of the hardest-working men in Hollywood. According to Men’s Journal, the “Mile 22” actor eats breakfast at 3:45 a.m. and is in the gym training by 4 a.m. By 6 a.m. he’s out working on his golf swing. Not to mention he usually fits in another workout in the evening.
He does the routine regularly (and of his own free will).
