Miles for Melanoma
The Music City Miles for Melanoma Run/Walk will raise funds to fuel additional research for new and better treatment options, and support the Melanoma Research Foundation as the organization advocates for the melanoma community and educates people about the prevention and diagnosis of the disease.
Miles for Melanoma events are a great way to meet others who — like you — want to find better treatments for melanoma while participating in a 5k! Many of the events are produced by local volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to making it a day of inspiration and fun!
