The Shade Foundation of America was founded by Shonda Schilling, a melanoma survivor and wife of Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling. SHADE is dedicated to eradicating melanoma through the education of children and the community in the prevention and detection of skin cancer and the promotion of sun safety.
The SHADE Foundation website is a great resource for anyone needing to learn more about skin cancer. WeatherBug Schools shares in the SHADE mission of prevention through education. WeatherBug Schools is also a proud supporter of the annual SHADE National Poster Contest. Each year, more than 15,000 posters are submitted from K-8 students and schools across the country. State and National winners are then selected.
