Hosts named for the 21st annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women

LOS ANGELES — Revlon, the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Lilly Tartikoff have announced the 21st annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women. Revlon brand ambassador Emma Stone will host the 2014 event in New York on May 3, and Revlon brand ambassador Halle Berry, along with Christina Applegate, will host in Los Angeles on May 10.

Stone will be returning for her third year to host the New York Run/Walk, while Berry is celebrating her eighth year participating in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk and hosting the Los Angeles event with Applegate. The Run/Walk was launched in Los Angeles in 1994 through the combined efforts of Lilly Tartikoff; Ronald O. Perelman, chairman of Revlon; and EIF, with a second event in New York City added shortly after. To date, nearly one million people have participated in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women, and the Run/Walks have distributed more than $70 million to support women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs.

Like her co-host, Applegate has participated in the Run/Walk several times. As a breast cancer survivor, she is passionate about inspiring other women to take control of their health and providing critical resources to women contending with or at risk of breast cancer.

"Revlon has been involved with the EIF Revlon Run/Walk since its inception and every year, we are reminded of how important it is to keep up the fight against women's cancers until we find a cure," Perelman, co-founder of the Run/Walk and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program, said. "I would like to thank all of the volunteers and city officials who help make our event possible each year."
