Events

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 2018, galas were held in Denver, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C, together raising over $1.7 million for melanoma research. Stay tuned for the 2019 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
