Melanoma March is back and bigger than ever for 2019! With over 21 Marches confirmed across the country and more to come, it’s time for Aussies everywhere to get involved.
Time moves on for families affected by melanoma. Just as time won’t stand still, neither will we. We will continue research and prevention strategies to end melanoma. That’s why we’re asking Australians everywhere to unite in taking steps to end melanoma.
Events are traditionally a family-friendly walk (4 to 5 kms) which bring together melanoma survivors, families affected by melanoma, researchers and doctors working towards a cure, and the wider community.
Up for a bigger challenge? Join Jay’s Longest Melanoma March – an epic 2000km, 50- day trek from Adelaide to Sydney. Sign up to walk a day with Jay, melanoma survivor, and help raise awareness and find a cure for melanoma.
Melanoma March is Melanoma Institute Australia’s major annual fundraising and awareness campaign. Melanoma March 2019 is an initiative of Melanoma Institute Australia. In some states, we work collaboratively with other melanoma organisations. In South Australia, we work alongside Australian Melanoma Research Foundation; in Western Australia, we work with melanomaWA; and in Victoria, we work with the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc.
Every five hours, one Australian dies from melanoma. Time won’t stand still and neither will we. Take steps to end melanoma – join our March for a cure. Register or donate at www.melanomamarch.org.au and follow the campaign at https://www.facebook.com/MelanomaMarch/
