Join us for Cleveland Virtual Miles for Melanoma -  August 2, 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 $65,000 for the 2020 Virtual Cleveland Miles for Melanoma event and make a life-changing impact in our community.

How does this work?

In an effort to still bring our dedicated community together in a unique way, we will be having a Team Week leading up to event day on Sunday, August 2nd!

Beginning on Monday, July 27th, our virtual event will start with a week-long “Fitness Crawl” hosted by local gyms in the Cleveland area. There will be a virtual workout each day of the week leading up to the main event day on Sunday, August 2nd. In addition, we will have various Team Challenges throughout the week, with fun prizes, to help you reach your fundraising goals! Each workout will be free- all you have to do is register for the event to receive all the information!

On Sunday, August 2nd, we will still have the Miles for Melanoma Cleveland 5k. All of our individual participants and teams will be encouraged to walk, or run, together in their local neighborhood, their backyard or on their treadmill! We will provide you a link to submit your miles and times so we can be “together” even while apart.
