The annual event Move for Melanoma challenges all Canadians to reach their own personal movement challenge (ex. walking, running, cycling, yoga, family activities, favourite sport, or other) while raising awareness and funds to support Canadians touched by melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers and ocular melanoma. Stay tuned for our 2020 date!

MOVE for MELANOMA!
Funds raised through the Move for Melanoma challenge go directly to helping Canadian melanoma, skin cancer, and ocular melanoma patients by supporting the work of the foundation and the patients we help both emotionally and financially, and advocating for all patients to have timely, equal access to life-saving treatments and therapies through health policy work.
Making awareness and education available is crucial. Since 2006, the Foundation has worked to raise awareness of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers focusing on education, prevention and the need for improved patient care.
