This weekend, Team Pale Skin Is In will be running in the PF Chang's half marathon here in Phoenix (Jan 15, 2012). While last year we ran to raise money for the Melanoma Foundation, this year we are running to raise money for The Shade Foundation (www.shadefoundation.org). Their mission is to "To eradicate melanoma through the education of children and the community in the prevention and detection of skin cancer and the promotion of sun safety."
Help support Team Pale Skin Is In and The Shade Foundation by making a donation! You tax deductible donation will go a long way in helping The Shade Foundation continue with great programs to educate school children and communities about Skin Cancer prevention.
If you would like to be part of Team Pale Skin Is In, either to run or just be part of the team, let me know - its not too late! We would love to have you join us...
I have only come across this blog this morning - and I am more sorry than I could possibly convey in words at the loss of your family's beautiful Tina. What a brave and wonderful girl.
Please accept my humblest and most sincere condolences.
With my most sincere best wishes
I lost my sister to breast cancer 2 years ago this coming may 25th. I am so sorry for your loss. Tina seemed like such a wonderful person and it is hard for me to understand why we have to loose your loves ones to cancer. I miss my sister so much.
Awesome cause! That's quite a long run... I admire you. Good luck!
"Pale Skin is in"?? As a dark-skinned person, this type of name really gets on my nerves. I'm Indian, and if you go to India, they have skin lightening advertised on EVERY skin product. Pale skin has always been "in" compared to dark skin. So when black people or Indian people get skin cancer because they use bleach on their skin, it hurts to see things like this. You have no idea how much pressure is put on non-white people to have "fair" skin.
