The Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE) and Make Big Change (MBC) just gave you yet another reason to spend time in Boston’s parks: Green spaces across the city will now be outfitted with free sunscreen dispensers.

The challenge was to do that in a Claire-sort-of way; with color, style and joy.”
