Teams of 2 and 4 will race throughout downtown San Antonio to solve clues. The clues could be anything that requires you to use your wits or muscle in order to solve. The first teams in with the fastest time with the most correct answers win!
Oh that's easy you are thinking. But we forgot to divulge the most important part - you can either travel by foot or VIA.
Miles Against Melanoma South Texas is a chapter of the national organization - Miles Against Melanoma. We advocate sun safety practices to help prevent melanoma, the most deadly skin cancer.
Miles Against Melanoma is a national organization that began in 2010. Our mission is to provide the public with education regarding the extreme damaging effects of the sun and tanning devices. Through MAM’s mission, we provide funding for awareness, education, advocacy and research for skin cancer, melanoma and cancers related to melanoma.
Mission, Message and Vision of Miles Against Melanoma:
* To increase awareness of malignant melanoma and skin cancer through education, advocacy and research;
* To advocate for detection and to obtain skin examinations;
* To ease the burden and to provide support for melanoma patients, caregivers and medical professionals through financial aid;
* To create a national association to aid in providing support to those with melanoma.
Our national website is www.milesagainstmelanoma.com
Net proceeds from our events for 2014 will be donated to ThriveWell Cancer Foundation. This organization works in conjunction with START Center in San Antonio. START has done a lot of work with all types of cancers. They have conducted clinical trials for melanoma treatment. Please visit their website to learn more about them.

About Whole Foods:
Whole Foods Market was founded in Austin, Texas, when four local
businesspeople decided the natural foods industry was ready for a
supermarket format. The original Whole Foods Market opened in 1980 with a staff of only 19
people. It was an immediate success. At the time, there were less than
half a dozen natural food supermarkets in the United States. They have grown to several hundred stores throughout the US. Whole Foods makes a point to support local communities. Miles Against Melanoma recently worked with them on their 5% day. This is a day commited to the charity by donating 5% of all sales from that day. We were able to raise over $6000 with just two stores participating. We are honored and proud to have them as a title sponsor.
