When the sun starts shining, you should know to lather up with sunscreen. One local Sprint store is teaming up to fight Skin Cancer.

As a part of their customer appreciation days, the corporate Sprint store located on Taryn Trace is running some special deals, but they’re also promoting awareness for Skin Cancer. They’ve partnered with Genesis HealthCare System.

"We are actually donating a fundraiser to Cancer research, research for Skin Cancer, so we’ve been fundraising for that since the beginning of this month so Genesis has come with some great health information to keep your skin healthy and natural and staying good," says assistant store manager Rusty Darner.

To educate local residents on Skin Cancer prevention, Jessica Johnson who works on the Cancer floor at Genesis HealthCare, was available at Sprint for questions.

"Prevention is the biggest part. Things like wearing sunscreen every day, limiting your hours in the sun of course and things like that," says Johnson.

Customer appreciation days at the Sprint store will continue through Monday May 24th from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
