LOS ANGELES — The 14th annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in New York is just around the corner, and once again Nate Berkus, host of "The Nate Berkus Show"; Jimmy Fallon, host of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"; and Dr. Oz, host of "The Dr. Oz Show," will host the April 30 event, according to beauty company Revlon, the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Lilly Tartikoff, co-founder of the event and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research program.

Four-time Grammy nominee Keyshia Cole will present a special performance.

The following week, Academy Award winner and Revlon global brand ambassador Halle Berry and Alyson Hannigan, star of "How I Met Your Mother," will co-host the Los Angeles Run/Walk on May 7. "American Idol" finalist and recording artist, Kimberely Locke, will sing the national anthem.

The run/walk starts in Times Square and finishes in Central Park, attracting more than 20,000 participants. The EIF Revlon Run/Walk event is one of the nation's largest single-day fundraisers to support women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs in New York and Los Angeles.
