On May 12, a team of American International Industries (A.I.I.) employees, friends, and family members joined over 30,000 participants for the EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women. Under the team name Ardell Lashes Out for a Cure, the A.I.I. group proudly completed the 5K in matching blue shirts designed by Korrin Torchia from the art department. The event began outside the L.A. Memorial Coliseum and took participants through the surrounding area, then concluded inside the venue with live music, medals, and refreshments.

The EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women aims to increase awareness, educate, and assist in funding research efforts and treatment services for women battling cancer. Over $65 million have been raised by sponsors and participants involved in the past 19 years. A.I.I. is proud to help in these efforts by standing together and supporting the friends, families, and colleagues who are affected by cancer for the seventh year in a row. Executive vice president Terri Cooper, who sponsors the A.I.I. team each year, says, “We’re in the business of making women look and feel good. Cancer can have such a profound effect on both. Our participation in this event reminds us that what we do is important and so is our commitment to the cause.”
