Dr McDreamy Patrick Dempsey saddles up for fundraiser


Patrick Dempsey has successfully cycled and run for 25 miles to raise money for cancer sufferers.

The actor - a heartthrob thanks to his role as Dr McDreamy in Grey's Anatomy - took part in the Dempsey Challenge alongside his three children.

The fundraiser in Lewiston, Maine took two days.

It was held to raise funds for the Dempsey Centre at the Central Maine Medical Centre.

Bridget Jones's Baby star Patrick and his sisters were inspired to help create the centre in 2008 by their mother, who died from cancer last year.
