Join us for DC Virtual Miles for Melanoma -  July 11, 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 $75,000 for the Virtual DC Miles for Melanoma event and make a life-changing impact in our community.

How does this work? 

We will have various FREE workouts throughout the week that you can join! You can sign up for just one or as many as you would like. If virtual workouts are not your niche- that's no problem! In celebration of DC Miles for Melanoma we encourage you to walk or run the 5k on Saturday, July 11th, that we all would have done together in person. We will provide you a link to submit your miles and times so we can be “together” even while apart! We will start our event day on Saturday, July 11th, with a Celebration Ceremony on the MRF Facebook Live!
