6th Annual Run From The Rays 5K Run Walk
This Sunday, April 22, 2018, the Safe Sun Foundation will host its 6th Annual Run From The Rays 5K Run & 1 Mile Run/Walk events at the scenic Spanish River Athletic Complex in Boca Raton, FL. Safe Sun is a non-profit organization created to help in the fight against Melanoma and other forms of skin cancers by increasing public awareness & fundraising for the cause.
Join hundreds of your fellow Boca Raton residents as they come together to run and walk to help raise money to support Safe Sun's mission of prevention, early detection, and treatment of Melanoma and related skin cancers. Race t-shirts and completion medals are guaranteed to the first 750 participants who have registered and paid the entry fee for the event. The 5K Run will begin at 7:00 am with the 1 Mile Run/Walk events beginning at 8:00 am. Following the races, stay and enjoy a healthy & delicious breakfast freshly prepared by Fit Foodz Cafe & take the opportunity to visit all of the generous event sponsors who will be present at the athletic complex. The event will feature a live DJ keeping the music & energy pumping all morning long, as well as a bounce house for kids & a free race for children 8 years of age and under.
The Safe Sun Foundation will donate all proceeds from the event to select charities who share a common mission to provide screening, treatment, education, and research for Melanoma & other life-threatening forms of skin cancer. Some of the beneficiaries from previous years include The Caridad Center of Palm Beach County, Melanoma Research at Moffitt Cancer Center, and The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation, among several others.
