Join us for Philadelphia Virtual Miles for Melanoma -  August 29, 2020!

Melanoma is the deadliest and fastest growing form of skin cancer and we all want a cure to be found soon. The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) hosts the Miles for Melanoma each year so that communities can come together to take action and help support the fight and the mission of the MRF.

This year, however, is going to look a little different. The MRF's first priority is our constituents safety and health. To make sure you all remain as safe and secure as possible, we will be adhering to social distancing guidelines and moving many of our events to be virtual. With your amazing support, we can exceed our goal of raising $30,000 for the Philadelphia Virtual Miles for Melanoma event and make a life-changing impact in our community.
