Founded by Tru-Skin Dermatology’s Dr. Dan and Lurleen Ladd, The Shade Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of skin cancer through education, outreach and building shade structures where children play throughout the community.
What better way to encourage Sun Safe behaviors then to actually provide SHADE. It is truly the action behind our intent and makes it all worthwhile. Whether it’s sunblock at community events, educational materials at schools, or actual shade structures over play areas, The Shade Project is making a difference for children and families and, in the process, making Austin a whole lot cooler!
