There are few things nicer than gathering with friends, with some coworkers, or with your mom and heading down to the EIF Revlon Run/Walk, a major Saturday-before-Mother's-Day tradition here in LA (the New York Run/Walk was last weekend).
Why are we, like so many others, so fond of this particular event, which supports the fight against women's cancers? We could say that its famously famous attendees are part of it -- we remember seeing Sporty Spice running one year, which was a fabulous sighting -- but that's really not it. That so many thousands of people take part, that it always happens on a beautiful May morning, that the Coliseum is a dramatic venue all goes into the day.
But we always remember the signs the walkers, runners, and volunteers wear to say who they walking in memory of, or who they are supporting and very often why. And too often there are several names on the sign. It's moving, very, and adds to the come-together spirit of the day.
If you've been, you know this is an important event with important goals. If you haven't, and you've wanted to go, call Mom or a friend and set the alarm for an early Saturday and some very meaningful participation. Saturday, May 9, 8AM opening ceremony. LA Coliseum at Exposition Park.
