Melanoma March Melbourne is back in 2017 with Melanoma Institute Australia and Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc joining forces once again to raise money for national melanoma research. The March marks the 11th anniversary of March Against Melanoma™ (formerly March for Melanoma) which was originally founded by Louise White of the Emily Tapp Melanoma Foundation Inc in 2007.
Melanoma March has grown into a popular activity for the whole family. The short 4km walk commences from Lawn 3 in the King's Domain Gardens and follows a complete loop of the Tan Track.
Registrations on the day open from 7:30am. Please make sure you give yourself enough time before the walk commences to check in. The march will commence at 9am.
Participating in Melanoma March is a great way to show your support for melanoma research, raise funds to find a cure and have a fun day out with your community. All funds raised will go towards crucial research dedicated to finding a cure for melanoma.
Lawn 3 is located adjacent to King George V Memorial Statue between the Sydney Myer Bowl and St Kilda Rd, adjacent to Linlithgow Ave which is also the most suitable place to park for the event.
For an easy stress-free option, participants are encouraged to catch public transport to the event.
