Melanoma March is a wonderful family and community event where participants walk, march and parade along a 4km course to raise awareness, remember loved ones lost to melanoma, and raise funds for vital research.
Melanoma March was established in 2012 by Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA). The inaugural Melanoma March, held in Manly, was initially a local event honouring the memory of those who have 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 fundraising campaign to support ongoing melanoma research.
The Melanoma March campaign provides critical funding for an ambitious new MIA-led project that will ultimately transform the way patients are treated by shining a research light on melanoma care.
