Baptist Health Systems Back As Title Sponsor

Baptist Health Systems has signed on as the title sponsor for the Tenth Annual Run From The Sun.

Baptist was one of first sponsors for the inaugural event, and they have continued to support the run every year.

“As a local Christian healing ministry, Baptist seeks to support groups whose mission matches our own: to work within our community to lessen the impact of disease and improve the health status of the people we serve,” said Ginger Cocke, director of corporate communications for Baptist.

“Through the Run From the Sun, the Leonard E. Warren Melanoma Foundation is providing local education and screening to prevent skin cancers, while raising funds and awareness to support research for a cure. Baptist is proud to be a part of their efforts.”

Tenth Annual Run From The Sun® April 6

The Leonard E. Warren Melanoma Foundation will conduct its tenth annual fund-raising event in Madison, Mississippi, on April 6, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

The event, a 5K run/walk and a one-mile fun run, will be supervised and timed by the Mississippi Race Timing. It will begin at the Madison campus of Baptist Health Systems, located on Highland Colony Drive in Madison. T-shirts and melanoma prevention tips will be provided to race entrants.

A free melanoma skin cancer screening will be conducted before the race by area doctors, and door prizes will be given away, including an Apple iPad Mini. You must be present to win.

All profits from this event will be used to fund Melanoma awareness efforts and to help medical researchers search for a cure.
