Lilly Tartikoff, and EIF announced today that Revlon Brand Ambassadors Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde will host this year’s EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women taking place in New York on Saturday, May 5 and in Los Angles on Saturday, May 12. Stone and Wilde are first time hosts of the event and will be onsite in New York, while Berry, celebrating her sixth year with the Run/Walk, will be in Los Angeles. With tens of thousands of supporters each year and having distributed more than $65 million to date, the EIF Revlon Run/Walk is one of the nation’s largest single-day fundraisers to support women’s cancer research, counseling and outreach programs in New York City and Los Angeles.
“When I moved to Los Angeles years ago, one of the first things I did was participate in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk. I remember how moving it was to be amidst thousands of cancer survivors, patients and their loved ones. It’s hard to believe that now I have the privilege of being a co-host for the New York Run/Walk. It is truly one of the best parts of my job as a Revlon Global Ambassador and I hope that we have a record breaking year with participants and fundraising for this important event,” says Wilde.
“Like too many others, my life has been touched by cancer, so the EIF Revlon Run/Walk is very close to my heart and a big reason why I wanted to become a Revlon Ambassador,” says Stone. “I am truly honored and excited to be part of this inspirational event and to walk side-by-side in unity with the other participants in our fight to find a cure for women’s cancers. I encourage everyone, including those not able to attend the event, to find a way to support the cause and the Run/Walk.”
“It is almost impossible to describe the feeling of standing before tens of thousands of women, men and children at the EIF Revlon Run/Walk. There is such unity, emotion and hope among the participants and it is truly an honor to once again lend my name to the event and the ongoing fight against women’s cancers. Please join me in spreading the word so that we can further the research efforts and continue to save lives,” said Berry.
The 15th annual New York race will start in Times Square and finish in the East Meadow of Central Park attracting over 20,000 participants. The 19th annual Los Angeles race will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park and attracts over 40,000 participants each year. TheEIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women was launched in 1994 through the combined efforts of Lilly Tartikoff, Ronald O. Perelman, chairman of Revlon, Inc. and EIF.
