Planet Sun Sport Report – 29 June 2010


Planet Sun Hawaii

Aloha to Sports Fans and Kids of all ages from the USO lounge at LAX. A very special on the road transmission!

Last week Shonny Vanlaningham placed second overall at the the XTERRA Eastern Championships in Richmond VA. A spectacular showdown ensued and continues among the top 3 PRO ladies of the sport- Shonny, Melanine McQuaid and “Swiss Miss”, Renata Bucher. An incredible site at the bike leg where the 3 super heroines raced tire- to- tire at times. Shonny delivered the fastest bike split, but Bucher was unreal on the run. Shonny still leads the US Series as the top female pro on the circuit. Shonny’s next stop is the XTERRA Mountain Championships in Beaver Creek/Avon Colorado, 17 July. All eyes on Shonny and Bucher, as the two continue to battle it out for first place finishes (both are smokin hot too). Check out here brief report at

Planet Sun teams up Miles for Melanoma (MFM) for a good cause. This past week Mr. Sunshine splashed down in Virginia, to assist Miles for Melanoma leadership in a noble cause. Mr SS linked up with close friend and skin cancer crusader Kevin Stenstrom, to provide performance suncare clinics at several running stores in the area. Kevin, a prolific marathoner and melanoma survivor, developed the foundations for the TeamM4M program. Clinic attendees walked away with some good sunsafesmarts, PS gear and a whole lotta inspiration from Kevin.
Planet Sun is a proud sponsor of Miles for Melanoma (M4M), a national fundraising program initiated by the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF)- the largest independent, national organization devoted to melanoma. “TEAM M4M” is a marathon training program led by seasoned marathon coaches who provide runners at any level an extensive training program and guidance. All proceeds to support promising medical research and to raise melanoma awareness. MFM chapters are popping up all over the US. See more about TeamM4M at:
