Safe in the Sun Run 5K / 10K

Safe In The Sun is a non-profit charity run based in Story County, formed by a Stage 4 melanoma survivor Jordan Hauck (owner and founder of Crown Cover UPF clothing), melanoma survivor Megan Burt (doctor of physical therapy – Ames Performance Physical Therapy) , and dermatologist Leslie Christenson (McFarland Clinic), working to raise melanoma and skin cancer awareness and to promote sun safety.

Proceeds from race registration and our generous sponsors and donors are donated to provide research funds and grants to organizations and universities implementing sun-safety measures, as well as leading skin cancer and melanoma research efforts.
