What is Melanoma March?

Melanoma March is Melanoma Institute Australia’s (MIA) annual awareness and fundraising initiative that funds life-changing melanoma research. In 2018, there are 20 Melanoma March events taking place across the country. Each March is approximately 4kms. By supporting your local Melanoma March, you are helping to find a cure for melanoma.

Who organises Melanoma March?

Melanoma March is an initiative of MIA. 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.
Volunteer committees work together to plan and coordinate their local March.

What is the purpose of Melanoma March?

Melanoma March provides the local community with an opportunity to come together to raise awareness of melanoma and generate much-needed funds for research. Some participate to remember a loved one whilst others are on their own melanoma journey. All come along in support of finding a cure for melanoma.

How will my funds make a difference?

This year is the final year of raising funds for our Big Data for Melanoma project. This work aims to build a register of critical information about people with melanoma, so that key questions that influence health outcomes can be studied.

Thanks to funds raised through Melanoma March, MIA is in a position to spearhead the establishment of a flagship register in melanoma. Once data has been captured and made available, the register will improve the ability of researchers nationally to address research gaps in melanoma.

When does Melanoma March take place?

Usually the Melanoma March events take place in March. Each location chooses its own suitable time and date. Registrations are now open so find your local march and check out the date.

Who can take part in a Melanoma March?

Everyone is welcome to join Melanoma March. All of the Melanoma March events are approximately 4kms which participants are welcome to walk or run. Should you have accessibility concerns, please do not hesitate to email us for more information.

What should I wear to a Melanoma March?

We advise that you practice sun safety when outdoors. We recommend applying SPF 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen every 2 hours. Participants should also wear a broad-brimmed hat, sunglasses, sun-safe clothing and comfortable walking or running shoes.

Limited merchandise will be available to purchase on the day of the event, or you can purchase merchandise prior to the event via our online shop.

Do I need to register a child under 5 years old?
No, you do not need to register your child under 5 years old. They are welcome to join in the event and there is no fee for them to come along and participate.

Can I bring my dog along?

Our four-legged friends are welcome at our events at the venues that allow dogs. Please check on the Melanoma March event page that you plan to attend. If you are unsure, please email us.
