Spring Swing®, Moffitt’s Sun Safety Tour, is a partnership between Moffitt and the Tampa Bay Rays, offering free skin cancer screenings at specified baseball spring training venues throughout the state of Florida. Screeners look for early signs of skin cancer while promoting sun safety, skin cancer awareness and education.
The 2013 tour kicked off at the Rays preseason home opener in Port Charlotte on February 23 and included 3 other stops in Tampa, Port St. Lucie and St. Petersburg.
In the six years of the Spring Swing program, nearly 3,000 baseball fans have received a free screening. Our skin cancer experts have found some 798 suspected cancerous lesions, including 22 suspected melanomas.
Moffitt would like to thank the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets for their support during the 2013 tour! Check back in late December for information on next year's events.
