Watch for us promoting Melanoma Canada and sun safety this summer at each race weekend we attend!!
In the Meantime, Practice Sun Safety!!! The leading cause of melanoma is over exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or artificial sources. Overexposure to the sun and other sources of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) are known to cause harm to the skin, eyes and immune system.
How To Stay Sun Safe
SEEK SHADE between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. when UV radiation is at its peak.
WEAR SUN PROTECTIVE CLOTHING that covers as much of your body as possible.
WEAR A BROAD-BRIMMED HAT that shades your face, neck and ears.
WEAR UVA/UVB wrap around SUNGLASSES.
APPLY SPF 50+ broad spectrum water resistant sunscreen generously to clean, dry skin, at least 30 minutes before sun exposure, and re-apply every two hours.
