Block the Blaze – Youth Skin Cancer Education
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. with 3.6 million people diagnosed annually, and it is on the rise. 1 in 3 Californians will be diagnosed with skin cancer during their lifetime. 95-100% of skin cancer is curable if caught early and treated quickly.
Block the Blaze is a John Wayne Cancer Foundation (JWCF) funded youth skin cancer education program. The Block the Blaze program is the official partner of the California Surf Lifesaving Association (CSLSA) to provide skin cancer education to CA junior lifeguards. JWCF educated over 24,000 California junior lifeguards in Summer 2015, and expanded Block the Blaze into 3 additional states junior lifeguard programs; TX, SC and NJ. We will continue our growth in the summer of 2016! To date, we have educated over 172,000 youth!
Block the Blaze has recently become an official charitable partner of the USA Swimming Foundation. Block the Blaze will be educating California Make A Splash youth starting Spring 2016. Together, USA Swimming Foundation and Block the Blaze will embark on a nationwide educational campaign that spreads the life saving messages of water and sun safety. Block the Blaze will also be an exhibitor at the Aqua Zone during the 2016 Olympic Trials!
