NEW YORK — Revlon’s Third Annual New York Run/Walk drew some 40,000 men, women and children into the streets of Manhattan Saturday to raise money for breast cancer research. Pledges are still coming in, but organizers expect the toll to at least match last year’s $1.7 million.
Yankee Manager Joe Torre, along with Revlon spokeswomen Cindy Crawford and Karen Duffy, hosted opening ceremonies held in Times Square. And recording artist Mya sang her rendition of “Lean on Me.”
“Each year, 180,000 women in this country are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 48,000 die from it,” said Ronald O. Perelman, Revlon chairman. “As a company focused on women, Revlon has a special commitment to combating these diseases.”
Since 1990, Revlon has donated over $20 million to women’s health programs.
