2nd Mallee Melanoma Awareness Day

 

It was a glorious sunny day for country footy and a perfect day to spread our message. Saturday 17th June saw us attend country SA's Murrayville Football Club where we offered free skin checks and worked to raise rural awareness of melanoma.

The game between Murrayville and Peake was also a past players reunion weekend which saw our friend and melanoma survivor Ben Kerslake take the ground for the Murrayville Reserves who had a win!   He also delievered an inspirational talk after the game.

The day was a great success with all footballers wearing yellow armbands to raise melanoma awareness.  63 people took advantage of the free skin checks with 10 of those requiring follow up for a lesion of concern!

The AMRF would like to thank our Ambassador Glenda Thomson for bringing this wonderful day to fruition along with support from Ben Kerslake, Murrayville Football Club and generous members of the local community.

We can't wait for next year and thank the organisers and local community for their warm hospitality.
