“Strike Out Melanoma” is an evening of fun and awareness designed to educate families in our community regarding the importance of Sun Safety Protocol. As we take over The Stadium, we will create lots of fun and awareness through a series of “baseball” inspired events. Our SAM (Students Against Melanoma) Club students and Melanoma Survivors will be in attendance to mentor their peers and assist with our program.

The first 1000 attendees will receive a Sun Safety Goodie Bag with sunblock, lip balm and much more!
"This year marks a renewed effort in education, as we recognize the need to solve a hard problem that plagues our young people - skin cancer, especially melanoma. During the first 18 years of a child's life, they are exposed to more sun than they most likely will experience for the rest of their adult lives." E. Wayne Gent, Superintendent of The School District, Palm Beach County, Florida
The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation was started in 1995 after Richard Kann died at age 44 of a late detected melanoma. Family and friends formed an organizationto help local communities nationwide, to detect and prevent skin cancer at its earliest stage.
The mission of the Melanoma Foundation is to educate the community about the prevention and early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma.
