AND!!! If you can round up a Dachshund or two bring them along – wearing a zebra suit. (Yes, you read correctly, dachshunds in zebra suits).

Andrew’s concept is…”many of us live in such a privileged country yet we seem to moan and complain about insignificant things, when so much of the world is in turmoil where people are really suffering.”

We invite you to take steps to beat melanoma by joining our Melanoma March event in Adelaide on Sunday 26 March 2023.

Melanoma March is a family-friendly 4km walk and it’s about taking steps together to honour those we’ve lost, support those impacted by melanoma, and raise awareness and funds so we are one step closer to reaching the goal of zero deaths from melanoma.

Australia has the highest melanoma rates in the world, with one person diagnosed every 30 minutes and one person dying from the disease every 6 hours. It is also the most common cancer affecting 20-39 year old Australians. Currently, 50% of advanced melanoma patients don’t respond or become resistant to new immunotherapy treatments.
Cost to attend are Adults (over 18 years) $40, Child (5-17 years) $20, Child (under 5) Free, plus we have a Family deal (2 x Adults and up to 5 Children 5-17 yrs) $100.
