The Leathernecks Dragon Boat Team is comprised of former and retired U.S. Marines, whose average age is 66. The slang term “Leatherneck” is used to describe United States Marine Corps members and originated from the leather collar formerly part of the uniform, worn for protection of the neck during sword combat. Many of the team’s members are battling skin cancer in one form or another and spend countless hours training and racing in the sun.
This past September eight adventurous women took on the challenge of hiking the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim as part of their journey of personal fitness and well being. Fitness expert Dr. Peeke and Dermatologist Dr. Baughman reflect back on the factors that attributed to the overall success of their excursion.
Not too long ago, we received a letter along with a picture from a thrilled first time Coolibar customer, who decided to let us know how impressed she was with our quick drying, breathable sun protection apparel. “As a very satisfied first time customer of Coolibar clothing, I wanted to show you that it was a pleasure wearing my hat and outfit on a very hot day and still feeling cool!”
Over the past months, Coolibar’s merchandising team has been hard at work designing new sun protection apparel. One of the more exciting parts of creating new products is putting them up to the test! Dermatologist Dr. Manju George was one of the first to try our NEW Coolibar Convertible Polo and give us her input.
