Move for Melanoma is an activity challenge that takes place across Canada. The goal of the event is to bring awareness to melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancer and ocular melanoma, while raising funds to support patients affected with these diseases when they need it most.
This year, the event will take place on September 23-25, 2022. As always, participants will be able to choose a physical challenge of their choice to complete on the weekend of the event. Participants will form teams and, together with their friends and family, try to reach their personal fundraising goals.
What: On September 23-25, Save Your Skin Foundation will be hosting its 4th annual Move for Melanoma activity challenge across Canada to raise funds for melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancer and ocular melanoma patients.
This September, join us from your living room, your yard, your neighbourhood park, or your favourite trail to move your body, connect with your teammates and celebrate survivors.
Why: Save Your Skin Foundation is the only organization in Canada that supports skin cancer patients financially when they need it most. All the money raised through your donations goes directly to patients in the form of cab fares, treatment costs, flights, accommodation and other necessary but costly expenses incurred while receiving treatment.
How: We’ve made it super easy for you to participate! To get started, sign up here. You can register as a Team Captain, as an individual or join an existing team. Once you’ve registered, we’ll email you some resources to help you recruit team members and encourage people to start donating to your team.
Then, on the weekend of Sept. 23-25, we’ll invite you to complete your chosen activity and take lots of pictures to capture the fun.
Whether you’re a survivor who wants to bring hope to newly diagnosed patients, the family member or friend of a patient who wants to send a powerful message of solidarity to patients across Canada, or a patient who wants to help change the face of cancer for ever, we invite you to take a stance against melanoma and to move with us this September! Hand in hand, we fight melanoma together!
