Height seeking mountain climbers need to be aware of the dangers of UV at higher altitudes. Paul Ridley of Row for Hope shares his Mountaineering experience with us. “In the thin air climbers encounter above 10,000 feet there is often no hope of protection from clouds, and the thin air and reflective snow makes for dangerous sunburns. While climbing I’ve been sunburned on the roof of my mouth, the underside of my nose, and inside my nostrils.”
Tennis players spend countless hours in the sun, exposed to harmful UV. Some of the best players on the court have dedicated themselves to promoting skin cancer awareness, including tennis pro Andy Caress. He started the Mela-KNOW-More Foundation to alert the world of the seriousness of melanoma. So, grab your racquet, hat, UV T-shirt and sunscreen and hit the court! Protect yourself from the sun so you can concentrate on your game!
