Port Lincoln, Australia's "Seafood Capital" in South Australia will be welcoming Melanoma Institute Australia to their town for the very first time in March 2016, as the community bands together to march toward a cure. The march is being hosted by Denise and Emily Barnes, Monique Siegert and Peta Fuss.

 

Melanoma March Port Lincoln will commence from the stage near the Makybe Diva statue, halfway along the Port Lincoln Foreshore on Tasman Terrace and head towards the Port Lincoln Yaht Club, before looping around and returning the the start position, before repeating the same route to make 4km. The Port Lincoln March will be a fun family day out with plenty of entertainment, a jumping castle and face painter for the kids, BBQ and miniature sweets - a day not to be missed!

 

This early morning 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. You're invited to take part as Australia unites to fight this devasting disease.

 

The Port Lincoln committee and their families are hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma, and along with Melanoma Institute Australia, encourage you to get involved and march to one day find a cure.

 

GETTING THERE

There is street parking available near the start position, but please be advised most of it is timed parking. 

 

 

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 appropriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses and remember your comfortable shoes.
