Move for Melanoma 2021 will be held across Canada September 25-26, 2021 – Visit the Move for Melanoma website to register or donate.
What: On September 25-26th, Save Your Skin Foundation will be hosting its 3rd 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 favorite 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. 25-26, we’ll invite you to complete your chosen activity and join us for a celebratory virtual party on Sunday night.
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!

Throughout the year, Team Save Your Skin – whose members are active runners, marathoners and cyclists – compete in various races and sporting events across Canada to support Save Your Skin Foundation through fundraising and awareness. All money raised through the Team’s fundraising efforts goes directly to Save Your Skin Foundation and, in turn, directly helps those touched by melanoma through financial support (click here to read a story about why, who and how we help)!
