Description

FUN FACTS:

Did you know? Melanoma is a deadly skin cancer that affects over one million Americans every single year.
 
Florida has the second-highest incidence of melanoma in the United States. 

Sun protection and early detection are key to preventing melanoma.

What do YOU need to be on the look-out for? The ABCDE’s of melanoma are a good place to start!

             Asymmetry - one half of the mole does not match the other
             Border - the edges are irregular, ragged, notched, blurred; normal moles are   
                             round or oval
             Color - the mole is not evenly colored: it may include shades of brown or 
                          black, or patches or pink, red, white or blue.
             Diameter - the spot is larger than 6mm across
             Evolving - the mole is changing in size
 

RACE DETAILS:

The ‘SPF5K: Shield, Prevent, Fight’ is a fun event organized for the community to promote education on Melanoma and how it can impact you and your loved ones. We have partnered with the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) in an effort to raise awareness and funds for dermatologic research to find a cure for this cancer.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021 for the SPF 5K race around the lake at Walsingham Park in Seminole FL. The race will be followed by an AFTER-RACE PARTY, where we will have food, fun activities, and opportunities to learn about melanoma. Bring your family and furry friends along for a day in the park! Dermatology residents from Bay Dermatology will provide free skin cancer screenings. 

All participants in the SPF 5K race will receive a raffle ticket, sun-protective t-shirt, and medal! Funds raised by SPF 5K participants will help advance melanoma research in partnership with the MRF and dermatologic education. By participating in the SPF 5K, you can help make a real difference in the fight against melanoma!
