It’s the 10th anniversary of Melanoma March! Unfortunately, due to COVID the traditional family-friendly physical events aren’t possible. So, instead Melanoma Institute Australia has created an interactive campaign that all Australians can take part in.
How it works in 2021
This March we’re asking everyone around Australia to join in and leave your footprint on melanoma!
Buy a $30 digital footprint, personalise it with a message of support or hope, and then share to socials to spread the word.
We want to cover Australia with footprints, so we need 15,000 Aussies to step up and buy a footprint – that’s one for every Australian who will be diagnosed with melanoma this year.
It’s about supporting MIA’s life-saving research so we reach zero deaths from melanoma, and also about supporting each other.
How it started
Established in 2012, the inaugural Melanoma March was held in Manly. It was organised by a Sydney businessman to honour his 20 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.
Melanoma March is your chance to:
- Remember those lost to melanoma,
- Support our dedicated researchers; and
- Inspire all Australians to help end melanoma.
Buy a personalised $30 digital footprint you will be supporting melanoma research so we can achieve our mission of zero deaths from melanoma.
Melanoma March is an initiative of Melanoma Institute Australia, incorporating melanomaWA and Amie St Clair. It is proudly supported by Melanoma Patients Australia, Australian Melanoma Research Foundation, Skin Cancer Tasmania and other melanoma research organisations across Australia.
