Melanoma March is a community walk event held at various locations around Australia to raise awareness and funds for melanoma research.
How it started
Established in 2012, the inaugural Melanoma March was held in Manly. It was organised by a Sydney businessman to honour his 18 year old son who had died from melanoma, while also providing an opportunity to raise vital funds and awareness.
The event quickly grew, becoming a national initiative of MIA and the major annual awareness and fundraising campaign to support ongoing melanoma research.
Melanoma March has continued to grow year-on-year and is now a collaborative effort between MIA, melanomaWA, Australian Melanoma Research Foundation and Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. giving the campaign a truly national reach.
Thank you to our partner Ricky Richards.
Melanoma March is your chance to:
- Remember those lost to melanoma,
- Support our dedicated researchers; and
- Inspire all Australians to help end melanoma.
Melanoma March is a fun community event where participants walk a short course to raise awareness and funds for research. Join a Melanoma March event at a location near you.
By participating in one of our national Melanoma March events or by organising your own event to you can take steps to beat this killer disease, support our research and move us closer to our mission of zero deaths from melanoma.
