Miles for Melanoma

What is Miles for Melanoma?

Miles for Melanoma is a nationwide series of 5K run/walks that allows participants to support and raise funds for the MRF by coming together in their community alongside fellow melanoma patients, survivors, caregivers and supporters. This year, there will be 17 Miles for Melanoma events occurring across the country, beginning in May 2021.

As we continue to monitor COVID-19 restrictions and safety guidelines, we will revise events being held in-person as needed. Check out the 2021 dates and locations below and mark your calendars for a run/walk near you! Please note our NEW locations in Tampa and Miami, Florida along with the state of Texas! We look forward to seeing you, in-person or virtually, at a Miles for Melanoma event!

If your corporation or employer is interested in partnering with the MRF as a sponsor of the Miles for Melanoma program, please contact Lorrie-Beth Miley, Senior Development Officer, for more information: [email protected]
