Outrun the Sun, Inc. is dedicated to building national awareness of melanoma and other skin cancers, educating communities about preventive measures that reduce melanoma's incidence rate, and raising funds for melanoma research, leading to effective treatments and a potential cure. We welcome individual and corporate involvement through volunteerism, participation, and financial support. It's support with a purpose.
