(KTVI)-As summer approaches, we spend more and more time outside in the sunshine. Many of us also think about protecting ourselves from the harsh effects of the sun, from sunburn to skin cancer.  One in 50 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime. It is the fastest growing and second-most common of all cancers worldwide.

Miles Against Melanoma, based in St. Charles, Missouri, is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to fight melanoma skin cancer by increasing awareness, supporting patients and their families, and fundraising for research.

The 4th Annual Miles Against Melanoma Walk/5K Run will be held June 7, 2014, at the Chesterfield Amphitheater. Cost is $25.00 in advance and $30 the day of the race. All proceeds from the event benefit melanoma research.
