Run is an all around four-stop, five-day, charity motorcycle ride across the state of Texas led by Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo and accompanied by other riders with a commitment for raising funds for AIDS, including CEO of amfAR (the foundation for AIDS research), Kevin Robert Frost. Kiehl’s, a New York-based company in the market of producing and distributing fine hair and skin products, is a large supporter of amfAR and its efforts and provided 100% of net profits (up to $50,000) from the sale of its Limited Edition Ultimate Strength Hand Salve to benefit TWO X TWO for AIDS and Art. The Hand Salve, with its red cap to commemorate AIDS awareness, is valued at $34 and currently still for purchase at Kiehl’s.

The grand finale stop at Kiehl’s in Highland Park Village ushered in special guests including Dallas’ own Bravo television star, Courtney Kerr; and also received a warm Dallas welcome from a crowd that proudly supported the initiatives of not only the Kiehl’s Texas Run but the TWO X TWO for AIDS and Art organization. Special Dallas hosts for this finale celebration included actor Gilles Marini (Sex and the City: The Movie) and Frank Campagna, a locally based mural artist who is the subject of the documentary, Dig Deep and owner of Kettle Gallery. The celebration was open to the public and featured complimentary skin consultations and mini-facials by Kiehl’s as well as a live art demonstration by Frank Campagna.
