Melanoma March 2023

Loading Events

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) is calling on all Australians to step up and join its 2023 Melanoma March campaign, to support ground-breaking research and raise awareness about the disease that claims one Australian life every six hours.

MIA’s Melanoma March events will be held in every state and territory during March 2023. Organised by volunteer committees impacted by melanoma, the local events raise vital funds for melanoma research as well as provide an opportunity for patients and families to come together to support each other and remember those lost to the disease.

We urge Australians to sign up to help us tackle this disease, which is known as Australia’s national cancer.

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.

Melanoma March events are a family-friendly 4km walk. Most events are pram and wheelchair accessible, and most are dog friendly.

Those who can’t attend an event can still support the campaign by getting active and hosting a March Your Way activity with friends or individually.
