Bluetongue stadium calls full time on skin cancer

Media Release – 25 March 2010

Football fans expect to see fiery sporting battles at Gosford’s Bluetongue Stadium, but now they will see a new battle unfold when visiting the ground – a war on skin cancer.

Gosford has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in NSW and the stadium is set to become one of the first in Australia to play a catchy jingle on loud speakers during football matches, encouraging fans to protect their skin.

Produced by musician Ben Lee, Cancer Council has trialled the “˜Sun Sound’ at Gosford beaches this summer. Now, fans will hear it played at NRL matches and events held at the Bluetongue, with a 30-second video clip beamed onto large screens to raise skin cancer awareness.

Quantum Manly Sea Eagles co captain Jason King, is backing the club’s support of the skin cancer awareness message. “As a league player, I guess protecting ourselves from injury just comes with the sport, but protecting our skin from the sun isn’t always at the top of our minds when we train.

“I’ve grown up going to the beach so it’s a terrific idea to have the Sun Sound as a reminder to keep ourselves protected, especially in a beach community like Gosford.”

“My message to fans is to listen out for the Sun Sound, and take it on board as an encouraging reminder to protect your skin.”

Sofia Potente, skin cancer expert at Cancer Council NSW added:   “Gosford has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in NSW, so it’s great that the Bluetongue Stadium is supporting this community initiative.   More than 130 locals are diagnosed with melanoma and thousands more face other types of skin cancers each year.

“Skin cancer is easily preventable and the Sun Sound is a friendly reminder for sports fans to protect your skin with a hat, sunnies, clothing, shade and sunscreen, when hitting the beach or having a game of footy with mates.”
