The Canadian Cancer Society has partnered with Credit Unions of PEI to promote, educate, and have fun with Sun awareness.
Being active is a critical healthy behavior in the reduction of cancer and other chronic diseases. Credit Unions of PEI and Canadian Cancer Society put a high value on encouraging Islanders to be active and we know that extended periods of time outdoors, unprotected from UV causes skin damage and eventually, cancer.
Skin cancer fast facts:
- Fastest rising cancer in Canada
- Most common cancer among 15-29 year olds
- Main risk factor is exposure to UV radiation
Credit Unions are proud to sponsor our UV photo booth this summer! We will be joining together to educate, and raise awareness on how to live well, be aware, and get active. When you see us this summer come check out our booth!
Maritime Fun Group also wants everyone to be safe in the sun! They are encouraging Islanders when having fun outdoors to be mindful of the UV index, seek shade, and cover up. They are a proud supporter of our SunSense program in PEI. If you see us at the park come and visit us!
