Health Alert: Block The Sun Run

Updated: Monday, May 5 2014, 04:31 PM EDT
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- You have just a few more days to sign up for the "Block The Sun Run" this weekend.
Not sure what your plans are for Saturday, May 10th but you are invited to stop out at Glendale for a special walk for a special young man.  His name is Andy Caress and his family started a Melanoma Foundation after they lost him to skin cancer.  They want all of us to learn more about the importance of protecting our skin from the sun.

You cannot avoid the sun, you have to enjoy your life and enjoy yourself.  But be sure to protect yourself from the sun's rays.  Be aware of the time you are outside, wear hats and protective clothing, and always sunscreen when you are outside.

To register for the "Block The Sun Run" CLICK HERE.

You might see some of the "Sunscreen Squad" handing out sunscreen with Andy's name on it if you attend this walk or run.  And Andy's family wants to remind us as the sun comes out, to check our skin for changes or moles that may be putting us at risk.
