About This Activity
University of Miami Miller School of Medicine students are hosting the 10th Annual SunSmart 5K to celebrate skin health!
Skin cancer research at UM's Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center
Melanoma, a skin cancer, is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Every 67 minutes, someone in the U.S. dies from melanoma. Sun exposure is responsible for most melanomas and other skin cancers. Floridians are at risk – of all states, the risk of melanoma is highest in Florida. Runners are at particular risk due to their increased sun exposure. A portion of the proceeds from this race will go toward melanoma and skin cancer research at UM’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Investing in research can lead to developments of new treatment options for patients with skin cancer.
Bring your family and friends, race for great causes, and start the day having learned about and improved your own skin health!
University of Miami dermatologists will be at the race to give Free Post-Race Skin Cancer Screenings within private booths!
Other perks include: Free t-shirt, participation medal, free snacks & refreshments, chances to win awards, special guest appearances, exciting raffle and auction prizes, and the opportunity to relax on a beautiful beach after the race!
