Safe from the Shade Walkathon

Please join me for the second annual Melanoma International Foundation’s Safe from the Sun Walkathon! The walkathon will take place on May 6, 2006 in three US cities, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Seattle.

Seattle’s event includes a 2-mile walk through the scenic Lake Sammamish State Park, a Kid’s Dash, free skin cancer screenings and a Health Fair with focus on skin safety and skin cancer prevention. The MIF Walkathon is in memory of Warren R. Olson. Last year’s walkathon raised over $200,000 towards melanoma awareness, education and research in addition to providing support to families suffering from melanoma.

If you cannot join me in supporting this important cause, please consider making a donation in my name. No amount is too small; your support is essential to stopping this deadly disease. The link for donating is: http://www.active.com/donate/SeattleSITS2006/JKogut14

Why am I working for this cause? See my skin cancer page for additional information.
