What Is National Don’t Fry Day?

We use Don’t Fry Day to remind ourselves and our loved ones about the risks of overexposure to the sun. Skin cancer is one of the leading causes of death for Americans. Practice good sun safety by wearing SPF30 or more, wearing sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat, and staying in the shade as much as possible.

To ring in the summer season, we observe National Don’t Fry Day on the Friday before Memorial Day every year.
