Actress Edie Falco battled against 150 competitors in a charity paddle board race in New York on Saturday (17Aug13).

The Sopranos star hit the water at Sag Harbor in the Hamptons to take part in the Paddle and Party for Pink, a race to raise money for America's Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The event raised $1.2 million (£800,000) for the fund, which helps pay for research into the deadly disease.

After the race, competitors mixed with celebrities and socialites at a special party, held at the home of fashion designer Lisa Perry, with guests including Martha Stewart, Donna Karan and Hilary Rhoda.
