ANSI Team to Participate in 2003 Revlon Run/Walk for Women


New York, Apr 17, 2003

On May 3rd, Team ANSI (#1019), along with 55,000 men, women and children, will join the fight to keep women healthy.

The money raised during the 6th Annual Revlon Run/Walk For Women will help ensure that cancer research, counseling and outreach programs are well funded. Many members of the ANSI New York staff are participating in this five-kilometer event to keep women healthy.

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 preventional 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 approximately $20 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 second 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. The entire ANSI staff is involved -- whether involved as a participant or as a sponsor. Together, we will make a difference."
