Sisters (And Revlon) Are Doin’ It For Themselves-------
Early risers looking for a way to enjoy what is supposed to be some glorious verging-on-summer weather in New York this weekend—while supporting women’s health initiatives—should head over to Times Square tomorrow morning for the start of the annual Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) Revlon 5K Run/Walk for Women. Below, we’ve come up with a top three list of reasons why it’s worth your while to make for midtown on a Saturday:
1. As one of the largest single-day fundraisers for women’s cancers in the country, you could be among 25,000 cardio-enthusiasts burning calories together to help raise funds in support of breast and ovarian cancer research.
2. It’s supposed to be 85 degrees tomorrow, so getting yourself up, out, and moving early will ensure maximum enjoyment of the day. Plus, a 5K is like…only three miles. Bring a coffee and a friend and leisurely stroll your way up to Central Park’s East Meadow, where the event culminates.
3. Revlon brand ambassadors Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, and Jessica Biel will be there (we’re guessing in yoga pants and baseball caps), as will Revlon artistic director Gucci Westman. One Dr. Oz will also be in attendance (we fancy him more of a warm-up pants kind of guy).
Click here to register, or just show up in Times Square around 8:15 a.m. for the opening ceremonies. Bring water, sunscreen, and peace of mind knowing that you’ve done womankind a small solid.
