Free Sunscreen Pilot Project: How Band-N-Go Inc. helped out. (PART 1)

Leave a Comment

Back in 2017 a successful pilot project called #BeSunSafe provided free sunscreen in 5 Toronto parks. The #BeSunSafe program was founded by the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund, the Douglas Wright Foundation and the City of Toronto. The purpose of #BeSunSafe is to reduce Canadians’ risk of skin cancer by providing free sunscreen and raising awareness of the importance of sun protection. In 2018, the program was expanded to offer 50 sunscreen dispensers spanning nearly 50 kilometers from Marie Curtis Park to Rouge Beach in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Band-N-Go Inc. proudly supplied ¾” stainless steel banding & buckles for dispenser instillation.But, it wasn’t just the products we supplied, it was going above and beyond that really stood out for the #BeSunSafe organizers.

On the Friday prior to the project’s unveiling, the organizers were anticipating an order of banding and buckles to come in from the USA. That did not happen. They reached out to Band-N-Go Inc. and with a last minute dash on a Sunday evening we were able to supply the products required to put up the dispensers on Monday. Our forward thinking and going the extra mile on that Sunday evening assisted the organizers with a successful launch.

Part 2 of this Blog will be launched in May.

May is Melanoma awareness month and we will have more about how the program is going, where the program is headed and how Band-N-Go Inc. believes in the importance of Melanoma awareness.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Canada and melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, is increasing in incidence.
