2013 Empire State Building Run-Up

Kelly Ripa is going to be running the 2013 Empire State Building Run-Up for the Team for Kids and she's asking for your help to reach her goal. If you'd like to donate CLICK HERE. The New York Road Runners Team for Kids is a team of volunteers who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners Youth Programs. The funds they raise provide free or low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who otherwise would have little or no access to regular physical activity, serving more than 130,000 children each year in more than 600 schools and community centers. These programs combat childhood obesity and empower youth development via running and character-building programs in low-income schools and community centers in New York City, across the nation, and around the world.

In 2002, Ripa concluded a 12-year stint as Hayley Vaughan on ABC’s "All My Children." She won three Soap Opera Digest Awards for her work, two for Outstanding Younger Lead Actress and one for Hottest Romance, which she shared with her real-life husband and co-star, actor Mark Consuelos. Ripa also received three Daytime Emmy nominations, two for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and one for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
  • She had a recurring role on the hit NBC series "Ed," appeared in the telefilm "It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie," and won acclaim for her turn in late night TV’s most coveted role: hosting "Saturday Night Live." Her voice could be heard as a guest star on the popular animated series "Kim Possible" and "Duck Dodgers." In 2007, Ripa hosted the TV Land Awards and the "50 Funniest Women Alive" special on the Oxygen network.

In addition, the company recently premiered "Jersey Cheer" for Lifetime, and produced "Dirty Soap" for E! with Machete Productions. They also sold their first scripted project to ABC this past year, entitled "Port Love," and are currently developing more in the scripted arena. They have several other non-scripted projects in development, and are currently producing the new series "Cheer" for CMT which documents hard-driving coach Patty Ann Romero and her elite competitive cheerleading team as they journey toward the world championship.
  • Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of "All My Children" and married in 1996, a year before their characters married onscreen. The couple lives in New York with their three children, Michael, Lola and Joaquin.
