Revlon Run/Walk New York to Take Place on May 2; Los Angeles to Follow on May 9

LOS ANGELES, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Revlon (NYSE: REV), Lilly Tartikoff, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) announced that Revlon spokeswomen Jennifer Connelly and Jessica Alba along with NBC late night host Jimmy Fallon will host the 2009 EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in New York taking place on Saturday, May 2, 2009, while hosts Emmy-nominated star of ABC's "Samantha Who" Christina Applegate along with actress, singer and star of "Hannah Montana" Miley Cyrus, her mother Tish Cyrus, Revlon spokeswoman Beau Garrett and special guest and star of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Carrie Ann Inaba will join together at the Los Angeles event the following week on Saturday, May 9 during Mother's Day weekend. EIF's 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 City and Los Angeles.

The 12th annual New York race starts in Times Square and finishes in the East Meadow of Central Park and attracts nearly 40,000 participants. The 16th annual Los Angeles Race takes place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at Exposition Park and attracts close to 60,000 participants each year. The EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women was launched in 1993 through the combined efforts of Lilly Tartikoff, Ronald O. Perelman, chairman of Revlon, Inc. and EIF. Since inception, nearly $55 million in grants have been made from the combined events in New York and Los Angeles.

"Hundreds of thousands of women and men have come out year after year to support the cause and for loved ones who have been personally affected by cancer. Their devotion and commitment to finding a cure is what has made the EIF Revlon Run/Walk so successful," says Ronald O. Perelman, chairman of Revlon, Inc., co-founder of the Run/Walk and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program. "Through significant advancement in education and research, so many women today are finding resources and treatments made available to them and with that aid they are beating the odds and surviving cancer."

Proceeds from past EIF Revlon Run/Walks have funded cutting-edge research, contributing to the development of the breakthrough gene treatment Herceptin(R) as well as other targeted therapies, bringing new and innovative treatment approaches to women's cancers worldwide. Monies raised have also helped numerous organizations in providing education, advocacy and outreach services to those affected by women's cancers.

"The heartfelt support that we receive each year for this event is overwhelming," says Lilly Tartikoff, co-founder of the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women and co-founder of the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program. "Every single person that participates helps to take us one step closer to a cure. Without our loyal supporters we would not be able to do this."

"We are truly grateful to the entertainment community for their invaluable support, helping us raise much-needed funds for crucial research and support programs to help the women we love," said Lisa Paulsen, president and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. "Step by step, all who participate in this even bring change and hope to women everywhere, like my cousin Dawn. She heard our message to get screened and went for her first mammogram at age 40 to learn she had early stage breast cancer. While this has been a challenging year for her, she's going to be okay."
