The Walking Company, the national specialty retailer of comfort footwear, announced its sponsorship of the 2014 EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women on May 10th in Los Angeles. Now in its 21st year, the EIF Revlon Run/Walk events have raised more than $70 million to support women's cancer research, counseling and outreach programs.
Through their continued dedication to the research, prevention, and treatment of cancer, The Walking Company is proud to return as a gold sponsor of the EIF Revlon Run/Walk as part of their Walking for Hope campaign. Since 2011, The Walking Company has donated over $500,000 through the campaign to support the City of Hope, and hundreds of charities, events and programs around the country, including the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women.
“We are proud to join the local community to support the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for the 2nd year in a row,” began Lee Cox, President of Retail at The Walking Company. “Our presence at this event reflects our dedication to cancer awareness and prevention, and aligns with our mission to help everyone enjoy the health and wellness benefits of an active lifestyle in the best comfort footwear.”
“We are thrilled to have The Walking Company join the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women for the second year as a gold sponsor,” said SVP of Special Events, Cathy James. “We are truly grateful for their commitment to the event and for their continued dedication to the fight against women's cancers.”
