What a year we have had for melanoma research and new drug developments!

Lets celebrate this amazing accomplishment by walking together at the Second Annual DC Miles For Melanoma Event.

WHEN:  Saturday, April 26, 2014 Check-in and Registration begin at 7 a.m.

              Run/Walk begins at 8:00 a.m.

 

WHAT:   A 5K run/walk that will allow participants to help raise funds to support

              research, education and advocacy for melanoma.

 

WHERE: Rock Creek Park- 16th St and Colorado Ave NW in Washington, DC.

              Please park in the lot  at the park entrance off of Colorado Ave NW.

 

WHY: Every hour of every day someone dies from melanoma. Recent research shows that overall cancer rates are decreasing, except for melanoma diagnoses! One-in-50 people will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime. The Miles for Melanoma DC 5K Run/Walk will raise funds to fuel additional research for new and better treatment options, and support the MRF as the organization advocates for the melanoma community and educate people about the prevention and diagnosis of the disease.
