The month of April was no exception when it came to innovative community fundraising ideas! Thank you to all our wonderful fundraisers helping us to reach our goal of zero deaths from melanoma.

Suzie Q’s 50th Birthday Fundraiser for melanoma research

Geoff Young Aussie Force Fundraiser

The amazing team at NAB Bankstown raised over $31,000 for melanoma research in support of their friend and colleague Geoff Young. They also held a fundraising sausage sizzle in the Bankstown community which was well received by the community and local council. Thanks to all involved.
