It’s #GivingTuesday! We’d like to think that our friends and members are in a giving mood all year round, but sometimes it helps to share a little reminder. Giving Tuesday is just that — an opportunity for non-profit organizations like Nevada Cancer Coalition to remind our friends that we rely on the support of grants and donations to do the work we have set out to do.

It may have been rainy and overcast, but that didn't dampen the spirits of Nevada Cancer Coalition and Renown Health staff at this year's RenOpen Streets event, Oct. 17 in downtown Reno. The event closed off streets throughout downtown and midtown Reno along a 1.5-mile route to encourage walking and cycling, community interaction, and overall healthy living. The Sun Smart Nevada sunscreen station was at the event route's mid-point and offered up free SPF30 sunscreen along with tips on how to stay sun smart.

Thanks to the staff and volunteers from St. Rose that managed the station and shared the Sun Smart Nevada message!

Sun Smart Schools' pilot program is now launched in six schools across Nevada! Garnderville Elementary School has been very active in their support of the program. Project Coordinator Rebecca Whistler visited the school on Sept. 8 to share some of the program's classroom tools with teachers and nurses at the school, and the response was enthusiastic. As part of the program, Northern Nevada meteorologist Mike Alger, of KTVN Channel 2 News, will visit the school on Oct. 13 to speak to students about the sun, the ozone layer, and how to be safe while having fun in the sun.
