Sun Safety Patch Program

Your skin is your body’s coat. It protects you from cold and heat. It keeps your insides in and the bad stuff—like germs—out. Did you know that your skin is your largest and fastest-growing organ? It’s important to take care of your skin by protecting it from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and indoor tanning beds. Over exposure to UV can cause skin cancer, the most prevalent cancer in America. Outrun the Sun, Inc., a nonprofit organization supporting sun safety and skin cancer prevention, is helping to bring Girl Scouts a new Sun Safety Patch. You can earn this special patch by being a sun safety advocate. Learn ways of protecting your skin and also teach others through hands-on activities and social media!
