Red Sox raise melanoma awareness

The Melanoma Foundation of New England sponsored “Don’t Fry Day” at Fenway last night.

There were skin cancer screenings for fans, players and team employees along with tips on the scoreboard for sun safety. Kelli Pedroia, a melanoma survivor and advocate, was one of the organizers.

Check out their web site for more information. Take this seriously, folks. Get checked out and give yourself the opportunity to do something before it’s too late.


The Josh Beckett Foundation and the Red Sox Foundation are co-sponsoring a raffle to help at-risk kids.

If you’re a Beckett fan, you need to check out the 19 prizes. There are tickets, autographs and opportunities to meet Josh and other Sox players. Chances are only $5.
