Breast cancer survivor Christina Applegate was among the crowd of 40,000 who participated in the 13th annual Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women in downtown Los Angeles Saturday, and RadarOnline.com was there taking part.
Desperate Housewives‘ James Denton told RadarOnline.com that he lost his mother to the disease in 2002 and now walks to honor her memory.
“The Run/Walk covers such a wide array of woman’s cancers and woman’s health issues that it affects us all whether it’s our sisters, our mothers, our friends I think we are all affected by woman’s cancers these days,” Denton says. ” I lost my mother to it in 2002 and Ricardo Chavira from our show lost his mom to cancer a few years ago. We get out and do as many charity events for woman’s health issues as we can.”
DWTS Carrie Anne Inaba had a happier story to share, telling RadarOnline.com this was her third year at the event. “The first year I did it with my mom and we had a great time together and then right after she went home to New York she was diagnosed with breast cancer, so suddenly it had a whole different meaning. My mom’s cancer free now thank you God, and thanks to all the treatments. We’re here to celebrate.”
Couldn’t make the run but still want to help? Carrie Ann told RadarOnline.com how. “Text the word ‘walk’ to 50555 and its an instant ten dollar donation so its the easiest way if you can’t get down here!”

The voice of Desperate Housewives, Brenda Song, told RadarOnline.com that she too has been personally affected. “I’m out here at the Revlon Run/Walk because my mom is a two time breast cancer survivor and I’m driving the Toyota pace car in honor of her and all the other survivors out here.
“She’s going through treatment right now and she’s here today doing the walk. She’s amazing. If my mom can do it, anybody can do it!”
Also spotted at the walk Rachael Leigh Cook, Julie Bowen, Marg Helgenberger and Josie Davis.
