Move for Melanoma – September 23-25, 2022

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.

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.

What is Team Save Your Skin?

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)!

Is there a race or physical challenge you want to take on, while raising funds to support Canadian melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancer, and ocular melanoma patients? Get in touch with us and we will create a unique fundraising platform to support your event, provide you with SYSF branded swag, and help you raise funds for Save Your Skin Foundation. Email us to join Team Save Your Skin!

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.
