Grant Award Announced: $20,000 for Sun Safety with the Portland Sea Dogs!

Maine Cancer Foundation is excited to announce a new funding project with the Portland Sea Dogs and the City of Portland Public Health Division for the 2017 baseball season! The campaign will include both sunscreen dispensers as well as sun safety promotion and education throughout the ball park. The Portland Sea Dogs baseball games at Hadlock Field are popular events in Maine lasting from April through September, and the sunscreen dispensers would act as a sustainable tool for increasing sun safety and preventing skin cancer. 

In May we will talk a lot about melanoma and sun safety so stay tuned for more information about the project. 

Don't forget to pile on the sunscreen year-round!
