SUNDAY CREW Foundation was created to raise awareness and promote the prevention and early detection of Melanoma. We accomplish our mission by organizing fundraising events that focus on sports that thrive in the sun. Our goal is to educate participants with ways to protect their skin from sun damage and detect signs of Melanoma. Through these events we have found time and again that one of the most common misconceptions among athletes is that all clothing is created equal in providing protection from harmful UV rays. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, a standard cotton t-shirt only provides sun protection of UPF 7.
Athletes need clothes that are comfortable, cool, and most importantly provide protection from UV rays. Our affiliate, SUNDAY CREW Apparel was founded to meet this need and offers UPF 50+ performance apparel to athletes who want to focus on their game without the worry of the damage caused by the sun. Beyond protecting your skin, a portion of the proceeds from SUNDAY CREW Apparel are donated to SUNDAY CREW Foundation to take up the fight against this devastating disease.
The Colorado Melanoma Foundation was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit in July 2013. Its mission is to educate the public about early detection and screening of melanoma, support patient networks, and provide current information on treatment options, sun protective behaviors, and developments in our global understanding on melanoma.
Based out of San Diego, California, The American Melanoma Foundation or AMF was founded in Southern California in 1990 by a group of melanoma patients and their relatives who believed in the importance and ever-growing need for support of specific research for new treatment approaches in melanoma, one of the most serious of all cancers.
