We're back for our fifth consecutive Safe from the Sun from the Sun.
In three years, we have raised a grand total of $16,898.21. Help us reach our 2017 goal of $3,200.00.
Join us on April 23th for a 5K race or a 2-mile walk at Wilson Farm Park in Wayne
Each year we participate in this event in memory of James E. Rodgers, who died from Melanoma cancer in 2012.
Jim was an Airborne Rangers in Vietnam, hence the team-name Racing Rangers!
When you register for the race, make sure you join team Racin Rangers!
Safe from the Sun has many components, including a 2-mile walk, 5K run, a Kids’ Dash, and awards ceremony. What really brings us pride, though, is our free skin cancer screening. Members of the community are welcome to attend this free screening with no obligation to attend the event itself. Some of the best dermatologists in the area give their valuable time in order to give these skin checks and we are so grateful. Over the years, a number of melanomas have been found early, which makes every bit of work well worth the effort.
All of the proceeds from Safe from the Sun benefit the Melanoma International Foundation’s Patient Services Program. This program provides one-on-one support to those facing a melanoma diagnosis, as well as their loved ones. From help understanding pathology to providing travel scholarships to clinical trials, our patient navigator seeks to understand and overcome the obstacles standing between the patient and the best treatment possible. It is an exciting time in the melanoma landscape, with new treatments being developed all the time. For the first time in decades, options are available for patients to live longer, better lives and it is our goal to help them do just that.
