Hi There and Welcome to the BLOG!

 I am thrilled to announce that what was once just a dream of mine has now become a reality…. 

 Skin Cancer Awareness Foundation Holds HAT RUN, 5K Race on April 6, 2013.

My sister, Sarah Lomax, and I opened The Lauren Savoy Olinde Foundation in May 2012 following the passing of our close friend, Lauren, at the ripe age of 27 from the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma.

We wanted to bring awareness to the community on the simple fact that skin safety and early detection through skin cancer screenings can make the difference between living a long life and the harsh reality of what we saw with our friend's battle. 

Some community projects we are getting involved in are sun canopies over playgrounds and an informational video for public talks to high school and college groups on sun safety and skin cancer education. 

For more information on the LSO Foundation or the LSO Hat Run, contact me, Emily Gonsoulin at [email protected] or directly at 225-803-4838 cell.

THE HAT RUN 5K Race / I Mile Fun Run

The Lauren Savoy Olinde (LSO) Foundation, skin cancer awareness foundation, is holding its inaugural HAT RUN 5K/1mile race on April 6, 2013 behind Pennington Biomedical Research Center, 6400 Perkins Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70808.

The HAT RUN event will include free skin cancer screenings, a kid’s activity tent, food, drinks and live music along with a hat contest. Participants are encouraged to wear crazy hats while running/walking either individually or as a team to bring awareness that we should all wear protective clothing and sun block while in the sun’s rays. The 1 mile fun run/walk will begin at 8:00 AM and a 5K run/walk will begin at 8:30 AM. 

JOIN ME IN THE CAUSE TOUDAY!!     Register for tickets at at www.lsofoundation.org.
