The Canadian Cancer Society is pleased work with Jamieson in support of a national sun safety campaign. The sun safety campaign aims to educate consumers about how to reduce their risk of skin cancer by:
- Checking the UV index daily, and be extra careful when the UV Index is 3 or higher
- Seeking shade and covering up with clothing in the sun Covering up with clothing, a hat and UV protected sunglasses
- Wearing sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher
- Not using tanning beds
- Use sources of vitamin D that are safer than UV rays, such as your diet or supplements

Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
