Melanoma March

Melanoma March is a nation wide event and a chance for everyone to help end melanoma. As AMRF's annual awareness and fundraising initiative, Melanoma March supports life-changing melanoma research.

Melanoma March has continued to grow year-on-year and is now a collaborative effort between MIA, AMRF, melanomaWA, and Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. giving the campaign a truly national reach.

Research is making a difference

In recent years, research breakthroughs have tripled the life expectancy for advanced melanoma patients… We are making progress, but we need your support to help find a cure!

Each year, funds raised from Melanoma March support a research project of national significance:

  • More than $1,250,000 was raised in 2016 and 2017 to support 'Big Data for Melanoma', a project that will ultimately transform the way patients are treated by shining a research light on melanoma care.
  • In 2015, $630,000 was raised for the Australian PDX Melanoma Project (AXMAP) that aims to unravel melanoma's genetic secrets.
  • Funds from 2014 were used to establish the ABC Clinical trial - a ground-breaking trial that compares the use of various immunotherapies in patients with melanoma that has spread to their brain. Some patients who once were given just months to live are now surviving longer than a year, some up to five years.

By supporting Melanoma March, you will fund vital melanoma research to help end melanoma.

Melanoma March Adelaide 2018

 

It was a wild and windy day down at Henley Beach on Sunday 18th March and whilst it affected our set-up, it did not affect the atmosphere and great time had by all at this year's Melanoma March.

A staggering $30,000 was raised from the Adelaide event as part of $620,000 nationally.  An enormous thank you and congratulations to all our amazing fundraisers.

Melanoma March is now in its seventh year and is the major annual fundraising campaign to support melanoma research. In 21 locations right around the country, the March is a special event which brings together the whole melanoma community to raise awareness and funds for melanoma research.
