How to Help


Support the Melanoma Community through an Event

Each year, the MRF hosts a series of events designed to recognize heroes in the melanoma community, and to raise awareness and much needed funding for melanoma research, including:

MRF Galas

MRF galas are the organization’s premiere fundraising events. In 2020, in response to national health guidelines related to the pandemic, virtual galas were held in San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver, Chicago and New York City, together raising $1 million for melanoma research. Stay tuned for the 2021 gala schedule coming soon!

Miles for Melanoma

Held across the country, Miles for Melanoma 5k Run/Walks are community fundraising events that support the critical research for viable melanoma treatments so desperately in need.

CommUNITY Fundraising
