A COUPLE OF PHOTOS FROM THIS WEEK

Made in the SHADE

Skating in the SHADE, a partnership between the SHADE Foundation of America and FMC Arenas kicked off 8 weeks of free skating and skate rentals at the Jim Roche Community Ice Arena at 1275 VFW Parkway in West Roxbury on Wednesday, June 25. The purpose of the program is to offer an alternative to being out in the sun when the UV rays are at their most dangerous.

This year more than 1,000,000 people will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the fastest growing cancer and affects more people than prostate, breast, colorectal, and cervical cancer combined according to the SHADE Foundation of America.

For a detailed schedule of locations, dates and hours for the entire summer, visit the web site and click on “Skating in the SHADE.”

The SHADE Foundation of America, was started by melanoma survivor, Shondra Schilling, wife of Red Sox ace Curt Schilling. It is “dedicated to eradicating melanoma through the education of children and the community in the prevention and detection of skin cancer and the promotion of sun safety.”

Christina Yeomans, 2, helps her mom Pam lace up big sister, 5-year-old Kates skates as they prepare to take to the ice. They are West Roxbury residents.
