The stars of Hollywood came out for a cause over Mother’s Day weekend. Revlon Global Brand Ambassador Halle Berry, Bruce Willis and Christina Applegate were among those who showed their support at the 21st annual Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Los Angeles.
The three aforementioned celebs acted as hosts of the annual event, an event that has become one of the largest single-day fundraisers for women’s cancers in the United States. More than 30,000 participants joined together to help raise critical funds to support women’s cancer research, counseling and outreach programs.
During the opening ceremony, Grammy Award-winning artist Brandy sang the National Anthem, while British crooner and recording artist Matt Goss performed his hit song “Strong” (an apt choice) for participants.
Additional guests at the charitable event included Nolan Gould, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, Tallulah Willis, AnnaLynne McCord, Samantha Harris andSandra Taylor.
The EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women was created by theEntertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), Revlon, and Lilly Tartikoff. It launched in 1994 through the combined efforts of Tartikoff, Ronald O. Perelman (Chairman of Revlon, Inc.) and the EIF.
The EIF REVLON Run/Walk for Women has distributed more than $70 million to date for cancer research, counseling and outreach programs. The events have raised much needed funds that have helped to deliver a novel, non-toxic treatment for breast cancer called Herceptin® with another promising non-toxic treatment on the way.
