The Shade Foundation of America was founded by Mrs. Schilling, wife of Red Sox Pitcher, Curt Schilling after her successful battle with melanoma. The foundation is dedicated to preventing melanoma through the education of children and the community in the prevention and detection of skin cancer and the promotion of sun safety. It sponsors an annual “Sunwise Poster Contest” for school children.

Gurbani Kaur, Grade 6, [was] the winner for the State of Ohio. She used cute frogs to promote the messages for skin cancer awareness.
