The Melanoma March 2015April 20, 2015
Melanoma March is an initiative of Melanoma Institute Australia and has grown to become its major annual fundraising campaign to support the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation.
On the 22nd March 2015, the 2nd annual Adelaide Melanoma March took place at Henley Beach. SunSense was a proud sponsor of the event, providing over 500 participants with sunscreen samples. Many people forget to apply sunscreen in the cooler months because they can’t see the sun, however you can still be exposed to UV radiation even when the sun isn’t shining. The SunSense samples were described as the ‘hero’ item in the registration gift bags.
The Adelaide Melanoma March campaign was a great success and raised close to $45,000 for the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation. This will help fund a national research project that will assist melanoma researchers around Australia to develop the next generation of treatment options.
