The October Roses Children Research Foundation is embarking on a pioneering journey with its groundbreaking "Shade Skyway Program: Creating a Shade Availability Property & Area List for Sun-Safe Outdoor Spaces." Spearheading this visionary initiative, the foundation aims to revolutionize how we perceive and approach shade availability in outdoor environments. By collaborating with stakeholders across various sectors, including the hospitality industry, park attractions, recreational parks, cities, and municipalities, the program seeks to evaluate and determine the degree of shade accessibility across different properties and locations.

At the core of the Shade Skyway Program lies a meticulous assessment that will result in the assignment of a Shade Availability Grade, scaling from 0 to 10, based on comprehensive criteria developed by the organization. This strategic evaluation process will enable the foundation to create a comprehensive list of properties and areas offering shade at different hours of the day, whether naturally occurring or established through innovative structures.

The vision behind this comprehensive shade availability list goes beyond mere data collection; it empowers individuals and families to make informed decisions about where to engage in outdoor activities without compromising their health. The program holds a special dedication to safeguarding the well-being of children and families, ensuring they can relish outdoor spaces with peace of mind, knowing they are shielded from harmful UV radiation.

Through the collective efforts of the Shade Skyway Program, strategic shade installations will transform identified areas with limited shade into sun-safe havens. Envisioned as a means to enhance the availability of shade in outdoor locations, the program ultimately aims to foster safer and more enjoyable experiences for all outdoor enthusiasts, irrespective of age or background.

The groundbreaking nature of this initiative lies in its aspiration to cultivate a sun-safe culture that places a premium on the well-being and health of individuals, especially our children, as they immerse themselves in the wonders of the great outdoors.

The October Roses Children Research Foundation is renowned for its unwavering commitment to improving the lives of children and families facing challenges related to regular and UV light exposure. Their tireless efforts encompass extensive research, educational programs, global outreach initiatives, prototype development, and awareness and fundraising campaigns, all with the overarching goal of safeguarding children's health and well-being.

With a strong emphasis on creating sun-safe environments and promoting outdoor safety, the foundation's Shade Skyway Program reflects its dedication to fostering a sun-safe culture for all. In collaborative efforts with various sectors and stakeholders, the foundation continues to lead the charge in developing innovative solutions that make outdoor spaces more enjoyable and protected for generations to come.

United with its partners and supporters, the October Roses Children Research Foundation remains at the forefront of advancing sun-safe practices, ensuring brighter and healthier futures for children worldwide. As we embark on this transformative journey together, the Shade Skyway Program promises to redefine outdoor living, embracing the beauty of nature while safeguarding the precious lives it enriches.
