USRowing Partners with Midwest Melanoma Partnership
7 May, 2018
USRowing in collaboration with the Midwest Melanoma Partnership have joined forces to raise awareness for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer among outdoor athletes. Through education and promotion of sun safe behaviors, the two organizations hope to further increase awareness and prevention of melanoma.
The MMP will join USRowing this weekend at regattas throughout the season, to provide sunscreen stations, free of charge for all those who need it.
