Win a sports shirt on Go Ask Mom!

As I wrote on Saturday, we're going to have lots of contests coming up. And we're starting today with a contest for five sports shirt made by North Carolina-based Eclissi Apparel.

The line of sports shirts for woman was created by Martha Garzon, a native of Colombia , South America who has spent her career working at tennis clubs in the United States.

Garzon was inspired after her own father had a case of melanoma that was surgically removed from his leg. And she was lucky to have some incidents where no malignity was found.

"After reading the statistics on this type of cancer it is overwhelming to see how many people get touched by it daily," Garzon writes on her website. "This pushed me to create an athletic line that is light, breathable and can have the maximum protection against the UV rays."

Her line provides SPF 50+ protection and is designed for quicker evaporation of perspiration.

I have five shirts to give away to five women (who will win whatever size they need)!

How do you enter? There are three ways and you can do all of them!

1. Sign up for our Go Ask Mom email newsletter by clicking here.

2. Follow wralmoms on Twitter and retweet about the contest.

This contest ends at 5 p.m. Sept. 17. Winners will be chosen at random. The winners' user names or Twitter IDs will be posted in this post by (UPDATED TO SAY) noon Sept. 21. I will also email the winners or direct message them by Twitter. Each winner must respond to the email or direct message by noon Sept. 25 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

(Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner, which originally was going to be 10 p.m. Friday. We just have some staffing issues, but I'll post it as soon as I can.)

    I use sun screen everyday. As I got older, I realized how important protecting your skin should be.

    I put on sunscreen on my body during the summer. I put it on my face daily.

    I put sunscreen on my face everyday but seem to forget to put it on my arms and legs even though I run/walk every day.

    Sadly I generally only use sunscreen regularly during the summer, though I am working on improving that. I just don't like the way sunscreen feels on my face!

    I only use sunscreen in the summer when vacationing, mostly.

    I wear sunscreen every day on my face, but I need your sport shirt to further protect me from the sunshine I love to be in!

    I've been using sunscreen on my face and neck for years as the sun ages you really fast. And during the summer on my arms and legs with a lotion that contains sunscreen. My ex-husband died as a result of melanoma so I encourage everyone I know to use sunscreen! It's a killer cancer!

    Only in the summer and usually only when I'm going for a day at the pool or beach.

    No I only put sunblock on my entire body in summer. But daily on my face all year

    I definetly wear sunscreen during the summer when I will be out in the sun for long periods of time. But, I wear a facial sunscreen almost all year around. Both sets of grandparents had skin cancer...I can't afford not to wear it.
