Thank you to everyone who participated in our 9th annual virtual 5K!
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic we had 253 registrants and raised $21,000! Those funds will go to the Melanoma and Immunotherapy Fund at Levine Cancer Institute bringing our total since inception to $258,000!
In memory of Amy Robinson
Miles Against Melanoma NC was created in honor of my sister, Amy Jo Robinson. She was first diagnosed with melanoma when she was just a junior in high school after a biopsy was performed on a mole she had removed. Her lymph nodes were removed from the surrounding area and she was in remission for over 10 years until it came back in her lungs and eventually took her life. Amy was only 30 years old when she died. Miles Against Melanoma NC is dedicated to raising the public's awareness of melanoma and funds for its research so no one else will have to suffer like Amy. Thank you so much for your support!
Proceeds will benefit the Levine Cancer Institute and other initiatives to increase the public's awareness of melanoma and the damaging effects of the sun and tanning beds.
