Stone and Wilde are returning to co-host the New York Run/Walk, while Berry, celebrating her seventh year with the EIF Revlon Run/Walk, will host the
event. To date, nearly one million people have participated in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women and the Run/Walks have distributed more than
to support women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs. The Run/Walk was launched in 1994 through the combined efforts of
Ronald O. Perelman
, Chairman of Revlon, Inc., and EIF. The event originated in
and a second event in
New York City
was added shortly after.
"I am truly honored to host the 2013 EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women," says Wilde. "Before joining the Revlon family, I actually participated in the
event and still remember it as one of the most moving experiences I've ever had. At that time, I never imagined that I would become a Run/Walk host, let alone a two-time host! I urge everyone to come out and join me in
on May 4th. If you can't be there, you can still get involved by making a donation online to fight women's cancer."
"Like millions of others, I too have been touched by cancer, so the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women is deeply important to me. My role as a Revlon Ambassador gives me a platform to speak out on the issue of women's cancer and I hope that as host of this year's
event, we can continue to work together to build awareness and raise funds to find a cure for this disease," said Stone.
"It's hard to find the words to describe exactly what it feels like to be among tens of thousands of cancer survivors, patients, loved ones and supporters at the EIF Revlon Run/Walk. All I can say is that I cannot imagine a more important and more inspirational way to spend a Saturday morning. I hope we can celebrate the Run/Walk's 20th anniversary with record-breaking attendance and fundraising as we fight this disease together," said Berry.
