MILES FOR MELANOMA 5K RUN/WALK - PRESENTED BY DERMATOLOGY CONSULTANTS

 

Join us for the Fourth Annual Miles for Melanoma Twin Cities!

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 Twin Cities 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.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

• Free Skin Cancer Screenings are available to all attendees. Educational information about melanoma prevention and treatment and sunscreen will be provided to all participants.

•The course is certified and the race is chip timed. Awards will be given to the top finishers in each age group and the top fundraiser.
