The Miles Against Melanoma Oklahoma Foundation is holding its third annual 5K and one mile fun run a week from Saturday.
Founder Ashley Watts who lost her 19-year-old sister to skin cancer says it’s still a very serious disease.
"One in five Oklahomans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. It's a staggering statistic. Skin cancer has become one of the most common cancers for people in their 20s."
Watts admits she got some ribbing about not having a night time race, but she says this isn’t about avoiding the sun.
