Join us for the NEW Virtual Texas Miles for Melanoma!

The Melanoma Research Foundation would like to welcome you to the NEW 2021 Virtual Texas Miles for Melanoma event! The MRF is thrilled to introduce the month-long Miles for Melanoma program to those throughout the great state of Texas! We are challenging the cities of Houston, Austin and Dallas to get competitive and challenge you to raise the most funds for the opportunity have an on-the-ground Miles for Melanoma event in your city in 2022! Register at the closest city to you and help your city earn the first Miles for Melanoma event in the state of Texas, on-the-ground in 2022!  

This month-long virtual event, dedicated to the Texas community, will bring together current melanoma patients, survivors, care partners, supporters and healthcare heroes fundraise and help continue the fight against melanoma. A virtual event will still raise essential funds to support melanoma research, engage the melanoma community and build awareness while ensuring all Miles for Melanoma supporters stay safe! This virtual month-long program will offer various fitness and team fundraising challenges each week throughout the month leading up to the Virtual 5k and Celebration Ceremony on July 31st.
