On Sunday 6th March 2016, the Melanoma Institute Australia together with Australian Melanoma Research Foundation (AMRF), held their annual Melanoma March Adelaide.
The AMRF is a not-for-profit charity organisation which is dedicated to raising melanoma awareness within the community, and educating the public on the support services available to anyone who is affected by melanoma.
The March kicked off at Henley Beach in Adelaide, where marchers enjoyed the white sands and amazing scenery, before heading to Grange Jetty and back again to complete their 4km journey.
This early morning walk along the beach was a great activity for the whole family to enjoy while they fundraise and raise awareness for Australia’s national cancer, melanoma.
The Adelaide Melanoma March was a huge success where more than 500 people participated in the march to take a stand against melanoma and help support research.
Adelaide brought its best weather and all of the Marchers appreciated the SunSense sunscreen they found in their registration packs. Participants were also able to top up their SunSense throughout the day and enjoyed having a throw of their SunSense Frisbees after the walk.
More than $40,000 was raised from the Adelaide march, which will fun ongoing local research to find a cure for melanoma. Nationally, nearly half a million dollars has been raised so far, helping make a difference to melanoma patients around the country.
It’s great to see so many Australians take a stand against melanoma. If you are interested in participating, or for more information, click here.
