Due to safety concerns following the Boston bombings, Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Revlon Run/ Walk, an annual event raising money for women’s cancers on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, was under tight security.
“We are taking the security measures very seriously, we are not commenting on the procedures, but we are working closely with LAPD and private security,” Cathy James, the Senior Vice President of Special Events at EIF, said in a phone conversation.
According to the EIF/ Revlon Walk website, people were asked not to bring backpacks or bags to the walk. Any items carried by attendees had to be put in clear plastic bags. All walkers and runners were also urged to keep their belongings with them at all times.
