Melanoma March Darwin is back again in 2016! Melanoma Institute Australia and their local committee look forward to hosting the 3rd annual Melanoma March, held at the beautiful Bicentennial Park.

 

Melanoma March Darwin will commence from the children's playground in Bicentennial Park, with participants heading along the path towards Cenotaph before looping and returning to the children's playground for refreshments and entertainment.

 

In 2016, participants of the event are welcome to march, walk, stroll or even run the event. We encourage runners to make their way to the front of the pack at the start of the event. Please note; this is not a timed event.

 

The hosts of this event, Hayley Chalkley,  Leonie Warburton and Alex Inggs have all been affected by the devastation that melanoma has on Australian society. Hayley, Leonie and Alex are dedicated supporters of Melanoma Institute Australia hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma, and encourage you, along with the team at Melanoma Institute Australia to get involved and march to one day find a cure!

 

 

GETTING THERE

Located just minutes from Darwin's CBD, Bicentennial Park is highly accessible by car and bus. Please check bus services from the Transport NT website.

 

 

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 sunscreen before leaving home. Participants are also encouraged to dress approriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses, and remember your comfortable shoes.

 

CAN YOU HELP?

As a not-for-profit organisation, these events are all run by volunteers. All profits go directly toward funding research projects of national importance. If you or your business has the capacity to help with the organisation of the event (printing flyers, sharing on social media, loaning pop-up marquees to the organisers etc.) it would be greatly appreciated. Please email us if you want to make a difference.
