Cycle for Survival of Memorial Sloan Kettering Wins $1M Grand Prize

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Revlon today announced the winner of its LOVE IS ON Million Dollar
, the company’s new crowdfunding philanthropic platform.
Beginning in September, organizations dedicated to women’s cancer, heart
disease and diabetes, competed to raise the most funds to win a million
dollar grand prize donation from Revlon. Competitors in the Revlon LOVE
IS ON Million Dollar Challenge raised $2.75 million, with Revlon
donating an additional $1.425 million over the course of the challenge
for a total distribution of $4.18 million. Raising over $950,000, Cycle
for Survival of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
is the top
fundraiser and winner of the grand prize donation.

Said Lorenzo Delpani, CEO of Revlon: “We are extremely proud of the
success of our LOVE IS ON Million Dollar Challenge. By using competition
to incentivize women’s health organizations to raise funds, we greatly
increased the impact of our charitable giving, which was always our
primary goal. It was particularly heartwarming to watch charities of all
sizes embrace the spirit of the Challenge by creatively activating and
engaging their supporter networks.”

“All of us at Memorial Sloan Kettering are delighted that Cycle for
Survival has won Revlon’s “LOVE IS ON” Million Dollar Challenge, and we
are grateful to Revlon and to our many supporters who worked together to
put Cycle for Survival on top,” said Dr. Craig B. Thompson, Memorial
Sloan Kettering’s President and CEO. “The entire million dollar prize
will be used to fund research into rare gynecologic cancers here at the
Center, supporting innovative studies that have the potential to make a
meaningful difference in women’s lives.”

The Challenge runner-up is the Cancer Research Institute, which
raised over $700,000 and received a $250,000 prize from Revlon. In
addition to the two top prizes, special ‘bonus challenges’ worth a total
of $175,000 were awarded to various organizations over the six-week
