THE 2020 MELBOURNE MELANOMA MARCH HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Given the evolving responses to Covid-19 situation, it has been necessary for the Skin Health Institute to carefully consider the Melbourne Melanoma March. We have now recommended that the March be cancelled, and that has been agreed with the Melanoma Institute Australia
MELANOMA MARCH - CANCELLATION OF ALL EVENTS
Statement from Melanoma Institute Australia CEO Matthew Browne
Due to the escalating impact of COVID-19, and in the interests of the health and safety of all participants and attendees, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining Melanoma March events nationally. This includes the seven events scheduled for this weekend - Melbourne, Bunbury, Bendigo, Coolangatta, Macarthur, Mackay, and Wagga Wagga.
This decision has not been made lightly, however protecting the health of our dedicated community members and their families who run and attend these events, many of whom are cancer patients, is paramount.
We will be offering full refunds for registrations, and will provide further information shortly regarding that process.
We are planning to hold a virtual Melanoma March event on Sunday 29th March to enable our community across Australia to still come together as we have done for Melanoma March for the last 9 years. We will provide more detail regarding this in the coming weeks.
My sincere apologies and thanks particularly to our volunteer committees who work tirelessly to put on their local Melanoma March events every year.
