Sun Safety is for EveryBODY – Join the Movement!

Whether you or someone you loved braved the challenges of melanoma, you understand more than most the critical importance of sun safety. Our latest initiative, Sun Safety is for EveryBODY, transcends a mere campaign—it embodies a community-wide rally against the damaging impacts of UV exposure. It serves as a beacon of hope and proactive engagement for those who’ve faced the sun’s darker side.

Our lives are filled with outdoor moments, from cheering at sporting events, browsing through farmers’ markets, enjoying the festivity of county fairs, supporting talents at high school events, getting lost in the music at local festivals, to celebrating together at holiday parades. Each event under the sun is a story, a memory, and a risk that we no longer have to take passively.
