Prof Georgina Long AO and Prof Richard Scolyer AO clear up confusion which has recently arisen due to the promotion of a new melanoma walking event.


We want to clear up some confusion which has recently arisen amongst some of our patients and their families due to the promotion of a new melanoma walking event taking place in March. It alludes to Melanoma Institute Australia’s mission, with Melanoma March wording and photos appearing on participant and organiser online pages.

This new event is not linked to Melanoma Institute Australia and is not part in any way of Melanoma March which is now in its 11th year.

Our valued community deserves transparency and clarity with regards to where your hard earned donations go. We will continue to ensure that every donation to MIA – large or small – is invested into our ground-breaking and proven research.

We thank you in advance for your support of this year’s Melanoma March.
