Why Participate?

9,500 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Additionally, 560 people are diagnosed with melanoma daily. Outrun the Sun supports melanoma research at top medical institutions throughout the United States. We are honored to support 28 Melanoma Research Scholars who actively seek a cure for melanoma. Funding also supports educational programs that help prevent skin cancer altogether. THANK YOU for your generous support!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

In addition to funding melanoma research, race proceeds support Outrun the Sun’s ongoing educational community partnerships. These include programs with Girl Scout councils, youth camps and schools across America. For a complete overview of Outrun the Sun’s programs, please visit our web site at www.outrunthesun.org. These initiatives would not be possible without your support of the Race Against Melanoma!
