Don't Fry Day

The Friday before Memorial Day is Don't Fry Day!

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention designated the Friday before Memorial Day as Don’t Fry Day. The Council’s goal is to encourage sun safety awareness by reminding everyone to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors on Don’t Fry Day and every day.

SunWise Action Steps
