PRESS RELEASE

CAMP HILL, Pa. (June 29, 2015) - As the summer months heat up, Rite Aid is proud to serve as the presenting sponsor of The Skin Cancer Foundation's annual Road to Healthy Skin Tour for the eighth consecutive year. Beginning today, the Tour runs through late August and offers free private screenings to the public with the help of local dermatologist volunteers. The Tour will visit Rite Aid locations in Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The Tour, which will provide full body and potentially life-saving skin cancer screenings from the comfort and privacy of one of the RV's two exam rooms, takes place in a spacious customized 38-foot recreational vehicle (RV). As The Skin Cancer Foundation's flagship early detection program, the Tour also aims to raise skin cancer awareness and educate the public about the importance of prevention and early detection.

"Offering unique health and wellness opportunities, such as skin cancer screenings, to our patients in the communities we serve is a top priority at Rite Aid," said Dan Miller, Rite Aid senior vice president of pharmacy operations. "Rite Aid is proud to continue its sponsorship of The Skin Cancer Foundation's Road to Healthy Skin Tour as we work together to potentially save lives and offer valuable education on skin cancer prevention to our communities."

New to the RV, visitors have the opportunity to learn about Receutics Active Skin Repair, a new line of over-the-counter, dermatologically tested skincare products, developed exclusively for Rite Aid. The 10-piece line offers affordable, effective treatment for many common skincare conditions including acne clearing, therapeutic relief, sun care and anti-aging. Receutics is available in over 500 stores, including Rite Aid locations throughout the Tour, and online at

Since 2008, the Road to Healthy Skin Tour has screened more than 20,000 people, and detected more than 8,500 suspected cancers and precancers, including more than 350 suspected melanomas. Over its seven years, the Tour has traveled more than 128,000 miles, winding its way across the United States on its mission to provide easy access to 10-minute screenings that can potentially save lives.

"We are very thankful for Rite Aid's continued support, which allows us to bring the Road to Healthy Skin Tour to communities for the eighth consecutive year," said Skin Cancer Foundation President Perry Robins, MD. "Since skin cancer is highly curable when diagnosed and treated early, the Tour plays a crucial role, potentially saving thousands of lives."

People interested in receiving a screening are advised to arrive early, as the free screenings are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors will also receive educational materials on Receutics Active Skin Repair. For complete tour schedule, visit
