Melanoma March is around the corner

Melanoma March is around the corner

2 February 2015

Our fourth annual Melanoma March is fast approaching and with 23 marches happening all over Australia; it is almost time to march for a cure and help us raise over $1 million for vital melanoma research.

Thanks to everyone who has already registered to march in 2015 and has been fundraising to help us reach our goal. Imagine what $1 million could do for melanoma research.

Melanoma March will officially launch with its first marches happening on the 22nd February and continue throughout the month of March with people getting involved all around the country. If you register before the 20th February, you will go into a draw to win a $500 fuel voucher.

You can also help raise money by buying a raffle ticket for only $10 for your chance to win a Toyota Yaris.

Here is a list of Melanoma March locations, check out where your nearest march is and register now to get involved.
