This early morning riverside 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 and your family are encouraged to take part as Australia unites to fight this devastating disease.

 

Melanoma March Perth will commence from the northern end of Taylor Reserve, and walk west along the South Perth Foreshore. Melanoma Marchers and runners are welcome to return to Taylor Reserve at the end of the event to enjoy light refreshments and entertainment, suitable for the whole family. 

 

Please note, this is not a timed event. 

 

melanomaWA are delighted to again be joining forces with Melanoma Institute Australia for Melanoma March 2016. melanomaWA is a not-for-profit charity organisation established by Clinton Heal. Clinton and his team at melanomaWA commit their time and efforts to education and raising awareness for melanoma throughout Western Australia.

 

Getting there

Taylor Reserve is located approximately 10 minutes south east of Perth's city centre. There is ample free parking at MacCallum Park (reserve area adjacent to Taylor Reserve).

 

 

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.
