Miley Cyrus walks for cancer

Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus donned her running shoes for a good cause, joining actors for a charity event to raise money for cancer research.

The 16-year-old kicked off the Revlon Run/Walk for Women in Los Angeles May 9, which saw 50,000 people come together for the event, reports contactmusic.com.

“Think of all the money that you’ve raised by working together. And you guys have been doing it 16 years, that’s as old as me. So this is pretty amazing, to have a foundation that has been working for so long and just as many people are here,” Cyrus, who joined in with her mother Tish, told the crowd.

“The Revlon Run/Walk is seriously amazing, so make sure you guys keep it up. We’ll keep it going no matter how long it takes until all of our sisters are safe from these cancers,” she added.

Other stars who joined the run included breast cancer survivor Christina Applegate and Desperate Housewivesactress Marcia Cross.
