Serve Your Skin Tennis Tournament
IMPACT Melanoma is excited for the 2023 May Melanoma Awareness Month campaign, “Serve Your Skin” – a collaborative, nation-wide tennis tournament. Did you know May is also National Tennis month, too? The tournaments will take place at colleges and universities across the country. Through this exciting event, the recreational, collegiate, and professional tennis communities will share sun safety tips and alert players to protect their skin while playing their sports outside. This tournament will raise funds to support IMPACT Melanoma’s efforts to bring sunscreen dispensers, education, and necessary shade to areas of social and health injustice.
Meet the Founders of Serve Your Skin
The idea for this tournament came from M.D. Candidate Georgina Sellyn from Vanderbilt University and Sarah Millan, Resident at George Washington University, both with a passion for tennis and educating their communities on skin health safety on and off the court. We’re very excited to be hosting this brand new campaign alongside Georgina and Sarah so please join us in welcoming them to the IMPACT Melanoma Serve Your Skin Team!
