The American Melanoma Foundation sponsored the 10th annual Bike the Bay Event in Coronado, California with over 3,000 riders emphasizing the importance of sun protection. Bike the Bay is an annual event that allows participants to bike over the Coronado Bay Bridge, the only time that people can bike over the bridge all year long. The AMF partnered with La Roche-Posay to give participants of the event free sunscreen to protect themselves while riding. The AMF also educated participants of the event on the dangers of Melanoma, and gave them sun safety biking tips.
The American Melanoma Foundation provided a significant grant to construct a shade structure over the Kiwanis Playground, which was especially designed for children with disabilities, in Santee, California. The shade structure will help to ensure the children that play at the Kiwanis Playground will have shade from the sun during peak times.
