Free sunscreen is available in another county-operated park as a result of a partnership between the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department and SafeSun, Inc. The dispenser was installed on Friday, December 2 at South Inlet Park, located at 1100 S. Ocean Boulevard, Boca Raton.
Donated by SafeSun, Inc. through the Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation, the sunscreen and dispenser, which will be maintained by SafeSun, Inc., will help promote sun safety and provide protection against the potentially deadly effects of overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Fran and her husband Nathan Nachlas started SafeSun, Inc., a charitable organization, in 2012 to do something together as a family where they can give back to the community. They are dedicated to the prevention and treatment of melanoma and other skin cancers, especially in children, and are always seeking to use their efforts to make the biggest impact.
Sunscreen dispensers are also located at the following county-operated parks and facilities: Okeeheelee Golf Course; Coconut Cove Waterpark in Burt Aaronson South County Regional Park; North County Aquatic Complex; Juno Beach Park Pier; Ocean Cay Park.
“While we encourage people to get outdoors and be active, we want them to be sun safe as well,” said Eric Call, Director of the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department.
The Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department operates more than 80 regional, district, community, beach, and neighborhood parks, spanning several thousand acres. Their mission is to make the quality of life for Palm Beach County residents and visitors better by providing diverse, safe and affordable recreation services, welcoming parks, and enriching social and cultural experiences. This is achieved by promoting wellness, fostering environmental stewardship, contributing economic value, and by improving our community every day for this and future generations.
