Mike Geltrude Foundation

Mike Geltrude Foundation, Inc. is an approved 501(c)(3) organization that was established about a month before Mike’s passing in 2006 for the purpose of raising funds for melanoma awareness, education, and research.  Unfortunately, Mike passed before he was able to see the overwhelming response to the foundation that bears his name.

From Mike Geltrude...

“We’ve got to get the message out to people about how bad this thing can be.  I don’t think they realize how important it is to get their skin checked.  If we let them know about the dangers of melanoma, they’ll have a shot to save themselves.”
