Thank you for joining my 'Dream Team' for the Melanoma Walk 2017 at the UA Mall on November 4th. This event, in support of the Skin Cancer Institute, is now in its 9th year! My goal for this event remains to increase awareness in our community that melanoma can be prevented, it can be detected early, and that it can be treated. Well...that said, my immediate goal is for this team to raise at least $5000 to help the Skin Cancer Institute continue and expand its work!
I am proud to be part of the SCI and excited that this event continues to grow...and that our Institute is a presence in our community. We support research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of all skin cancers; we provide educational and outreach programs to local groups...and to our schools. We have created a unique UA-student team - the SASS students (or Students are Sun Safe). Come to the Walk and meet some of them. We also are trying to get sun screen stations across the community....check out the 'Protect Your Skin' program on the SCI website. These programs are vibrant...and show that your support...through the Walk and gifts...has an impact. We are making a difference!
I look forward to seeing you on the 4th....It is always a heartfelt experience to come to the Walk. Thank you, Robin
