This past weekend, a few of my fellow cheerleaders and I proudly participated in the Golden Key 5K Gets SunSmart! This race was held on the beautiful beach of Crandon Park in Key Biscayne, where roughly 500 people crossed the finish line. The cause of this race was to raise Melanoma awareness in our communities. The proceeds went to the UM Medicine Department of Dermatology, the City of Miami’s PAD program and Sahara of South Florida. The other cheerleaders and I learned that one American dies every hour due to Melanoma. This shocked us all. Now we are prepared to put on our sunscreen every day, especially on the scorching hot game days here in South Florida, and to also get checked regularly by our dermatologists!
Fins up, and sunscreen on!
