SureShade Employees Participate in Walk & 5K Run Benefiting Melanoma International Foundation’s Patient Services Program

SureShade was honored to support the 2019 Melanoma International Foundation Safe from the Sun Walk and 5K Run as part of their ongoing company commitment to sun safety.

In addition to sponsoring the event for the second consecutive year, SureShade employees and family members participated in the Safe From the Sun Walk and 5K Run held April 28, 2019 in Wayne, PA – a suburb of their headquarters in Philadelphia. The employee team was led by SureShade production leader Justin Palan, who has participated in the event for 6 years in memory of his girlfriend’s father.

“I can’t say how proud I am to work for a company like SureShade that is so committed to the issue of sun safety,” says Palan. “The funds raised go a long way toward the treatment and prevention of melanoma skin cancer.”

“From our core product of marine sunshade systems to our strong sun safety advocacy as the founding partner of, SureShade has a long-standing commitment to sun safety awareness in the outdoor recreation industry,” said Diane Seltzer, marketing director at SureShade. “Events like the Melanoma Foundation’s Safe From the Sun is a great way for our company and employees to further connect with an issue at the heart of our business and we look forward to making it an annual employee event.”
