Team ANSI Participates in Revlon Run/Walk for Women

New York, May 03, 2004

On May 1st, Team ANSI (#1019), along with 40,000 men, women and children, hit the streets of New York to join the fight to keep women healthy.

Money raised during the 7th Annual New York Revlon Run/Walk For Women will help ensure that women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs are well funded. Fourteen members of the ANSI New York staff participated in this five-kilometer event along with several other friends and family members.

Starting in New York's Time Square, the Revlon Run/Walk is an annual fundraising campaign to raise awareness and significant funds to drive research that will result in prevention education, early diagnostic indicators, treatments and ultimately, a cure for women's cancers. Proceeds from the Revlon Run/Walk For Women are distributed to a variety of charitable organizations leading the fight against breast and ovarian cancer. Funds are distributed to scientists who are doing the best, cutting-edge research throughout the United States as well as to local beneficiaries.

The Revlon Run/Walk was created through the committed and collective efforts of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, Lily Tartikoff and Ronald O. Perelman, and has grown to become one of the nation's leading fundraising events. To date, the Run/Walk has raised over $24 million for cancer research, counseling, and outreach programs. Thanks in part to these funds, new treatments are being developed and lives are being saved.

"This is ANSI's third year to participate in the Revlon Run/Walk to help foster cancer research programs," explained ANSI Team leader, Anna Salamay, the Institute's office manager. "Last year we raised nearly $4,000 for this great cause and hope to meet our goal again."
