About the event

MELANOMA FACTS: Did you know? Melanoma is a deadly skin cancer, and there are over 1 million Americans living with melanoma.   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 spot, will not match the other half              Border - the edges are irregular, ragged, notched, blurred, poorly defined; normal moles are                                 round or oval              Color - the mole is not evenly colored: it may include shades of brown or                            black, or patches of pink, red, white or blue              Diameter - the spot is larger than 6mm across, or about the size of a pencil eraser              Evolving - the mole is changing in size, shape, or color   RACE DETAILS: The ‘SPF5K: Shield, Prevent, Fight’ is a fun event organized for the community to promote education on Melanoma, which can impact you and your loved ones.
