We’re marching for a cure

Melanoma March is in its eighth year and is now Melanoma Institute Australia’s major annual fundraising campaign to support melanoma research. In each location, the March is a special event which brings together the whole melanoma community to raise awareness and funds for melanoma research.

Last year over 7,000 people from every state and territory supported their local Melanoma March and we invite you to join us in 2019 at your local March.

It’s an opportunity to inspire others, remember loved ones and support your local March to find a cure for Melanoma.

Why raise funds?

Research is making a difference
In recent years, research breakthroughs have tripled the life expectancy for advanced melanoma patients.

We are making progress, but we need your support to help find a cure! This year, more than 14,000 Australians will be diagnosed with melanoma and sadly, around 1,800 will die from the disease.

The incidence of melanoma doubled in the 20 years between 1986 and 2006 and are still on the rise. In Australia, 1 in 14 men and 1 in 24 women will be diagnosed with melanoma sometime in their life – melanoma is often referred to as Australia’s national cancer.

Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Australians (15–39 year olds) and kills more young Australians (20-39 year olds) than any other single cancer.

This is why we’re marching to find a cure.
