New York: Actress Emma Stone joined the fight against cancer at the Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women here.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" co-hosted the event with Andy Cohen Saturday, reports eonline.com.

The event is especially close to Stone`s heart because her mother Krista Stone was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in 2008.

The first EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women was held in 1994 and the events have raised more than $70 million.

The money goes toward research, treatment and financial support for women facing cancer.
