As the weather starts to get nicer, New Yorkers begin itching to get out and enjoy the sunshine by flocking to their rooftops and terraces. But, if you are like me, whose terrace experience only consists of watching the neighbors sip sangria on their lawn chairs then… to Central Park we go!
On Saturday, May 2nd that is exactly where I will be as I join celebrity hosts Jimmy Fallon and Jessica Alba, as the 12th Annual Revlon Run/Walk for Women kicks off in Times Square, ending in Central Park. The 5K Revlon Run/Walk for Women raises money and awareness for women’s cancer treatment, research, and outreach programs. This will be my eight year participating in this fundraising event and it is one that I look forward to throughout the year, signaling my official start to spring. For a registration fee of just $25.00, you are not only helping out a great cause, but you are able to witness more than 40,000 New Yorkers uniting for the same cause, while also uniting to claim their T-shirt and free gift bag, which I must admit has some amazing Revlon trinkets. Although you may cringe at the thought of waking up early on a Saturday to be in Times Square at 8:30am, the rush after passing the finish line after your 5K stroll through Central Park, knowing that you have helped spread awareness to eliminate women’s cancers, makes it all worthwhile.
Sign up early to avoid the late-registration fee at http://www.revlonrunwalk.com/ny/index.htm plus, lunch is included...and Cosi is sponsoring!
Hope to see you there!
