Undercover Cody, the SunSmart turtle, is spreading the sunsafe message in Tauranga with a new roadshow.
The Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society SunSmart ambassador is set to visit about 20 local schools this month and promote the key messages slip, slop, slap and wrap.
On his summer tour, Undercover Cody will be joined by his friends Duke, Ella and Rupert.
Cancer Society spokeswoman Rachael Mounsey said: ``It's Undercover Cody's 10th birthday and we are ready to celebrate with as many children in our region as we can.''
The Undercover Cody summer roadshow was written by New Zealand playwright Renee Boyer-Willisson.
Aimed at kids from 3-10 years, the roadshow is free for all schools that have booked online to be entertained.
Early childhood centres and Kohanga Reo are encouraged to join the fun with their local school or Kura and get their groove on with Undercover Cody.
Every child who attends the show will get a free goody bag full of great resources to take away.
In addition to the Undercover Cody 2012 roadshow, the Cancer Society has launched a new interactive website, and Undercover Cody fans will be able to download an all new `Undercover' App for their ipads and iphones free from the Apple online store.
Undercover Cody's message; Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap; whilst the same, has been given another dimension through these new interactive platforms, Ms Mounsey said.
She said the Cancer Society was committed to giving back to the community while celebrating 10 years of successful SunSmart education.
This month the Cancer Society will launch a competition where two schools will win a sunshade, worth $1000.
To enter, look out for the advertisements in the Bay of Plenty Times, find the lucky code and visit www.undercovercody.co.nz to enter.
The two winning schools (one in the Bay of Plenty and one in the Waikato) will be notified in December.
