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:

Wings of Hope for Melanoma Galas

Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas are the MRF’s premiere fundraising events. In 2012, galas were held in San Francisco, Denver, New York City and Washington, D.C, together raising over one million dollars for melanoma research. In 2013, we expanded to include Wings of Hope for Melanoma galas in Denver and Philadelphia.

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.
