This early morning beach walk is easy and great for the whole family. Taking part is not only good for your health, but you're also fundraising and raising awareness for Australia's national cancer, melanoma. You're encouraged to take part as Australia unites to fight this devastating disease.
Henley Beach in Adelaide, South Australia is a popular seaside suburb, boasting white sands, stunning views and a hub of local businesses offering a number of dining and entertainment options.
Melanoma March Adelaide will commence from the beachside of Henley Square and walk north along the pedestrian walkway to Grange Jetty. Melanoma Marchers are welcome to return their journey on the sand or on the walkway to complete their 4km journey.
Australian Melanoma Research Foundation (AMRF) are delighted to again be joining forces with Melanoma Institute Australia for Melanoma March 2016. The AMRF is a not-for-profit charity organisation established by a group of dedicated volunteers to provide funding for research into novel immune based treatments for melanoma. AMRF also have a strong commitment to melanoma awareness and education within the community, as well as providing support services to anybody affected by melanoma or seeking information regarding melamoma treatment.
Henley Beach is located approximately 20 minutes west of Adelaide's city centre. There is ample parking in the area, but please be mindful that some parking bays are metered. Alternatively, please check with Adelaide Metro for up to date bus services to the area.
What to wear
We encourage all Melanoma Marchers to practice their sun safety while taking part in this event. Sunscreen will be available at all events, but we suggest that you apply your sunscreen before leaving home. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses and remember your comfortable shoes.
