You might remember my friend Hillary Fogelson (aka PaleGirl) from the amazing sun protection tips she gave us on here on the site. As a melanoma survivor, Hillary has dedicated much her life to educating others (including me!) about sun protection. On May 6th Hillary and her husband are hosting Miles for Melanoma, a run/walk to raise money for melanoma research, advocacy and education. I’m always looking for ways to give back, and this worthy cause really caught my attention.
Here’s how you can help:
1. Register for Miles for Melanoma. If you’re in L.A., you can participate in the 5K happening on May 6th.
2. Make a donation. You can donate to the Melanoma Research Foundation no matter where you live.
3. Spread the word. Follow @PaleGirlSpeaks and @CureMelanoma on Twitter, and join them in promoting the event.
What good causes are important to you?
