UV rays are one of the main risk factors for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. With the climate here in Seattle, many people may not think about protecting themselves from the sun. However, up to 80% of the sunís harmful UV rays can pass through the clouds, even on an overcast day.
This year, the Seahawks are joining forces with Melanoma ExposedTM, an educational campaign that aims to raise awareness of melanoma and its risk factors and encourages people to take a more active role in their skin health. The Seahawks and Melanoma Exposed are offering all 12s a chance to get a FREE skin cancer screening before the August 29 preseason home game.
Everyone who receives a skin cancer screening will be eligible to win memorabilia autographed by starting center Max Unger, courtesy of the Seahawks.
