When it comes to Paint Nevada Pink, SHARING is the name of the game! 

We feel the best way to tell the world about the importance of breast cancer screening isn't throwing up ads on social media (we're a non-profit for goodness sakes!).

Growing up and playing soccer in the hot Texas sun, my parents always encouraged practicing sun safety. In high school my sport of choice changed to ice hockey, which allowed a lax in sun protection during exercise. Toward the end of my undergraduate degree I began participating in sprint triathlons. These triathlons were short enough that reverting back to the sun safety basics were enough to avoid sun burns.
