SknVue, Inc. and the Girl Scouts of Orange County will host a sun safety service event focused on saving lives through skin cancer awareness. The program will empower Girl Scouts to be ambassadors in their communities and promote the importance of sun safety for kids of all ages and their families. As part of this July 29 sun safety service event, Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to earn a new Girl Scouts of Orange County Year of Service patch.
“We are excited to partner with the Girl Scouts to instill the importance of skin health and cancer prevention from a young age,” said Randy Wyant, SknVue CEO. “One in five Americans has skin cancer by the time they are 70 years old, and much of the skin damage occurs before 18. Our mission is to educate young people on how to take steps to prevent skin cancer now and to protect their future health. Girl Scouts are an ideal partner for us in our efforts to reach out to youth leaders and their families, empowering them to become allies in our fight against this terrible disease.”
SknVue is a leading non-profit organization promoting global awareness and early detection of skin cancer.
“Girl Scouts’ time-honored motto ‘be prepared’ perfectly aligns with the mission to build awareness of sun safety and skin cancer prevention,” said Vikki Shepp, CEO of Girl Scouts of Orange County. “We are delighted for the opportunity to share such invaluable information with girls about how to protect themselves, and how to become a voice for sun safety amongst their peers.”

- Girl Scouts of Orange County Year of Service event patch and July add-on
