This has become a tradition and people ask every year. I personally fight melanoma so it is important.
Being with so many people whose lives were dramatically affected by melanoma affords a sense of intense support. The hope that our fundraising efforts will contribute to a cure for late stage melanoma is a powerful motivator to support this cause.
I felt a sense of love and support among the participants in the walk. At some spots, the venue allowed for one to view the number of participants — which was encouraging and exciting based on the growth of the event! Made me proud to be a participant for several years.
It gets better every year! Very organized and enjoyable!
Don’t ever stop! This is the first time I have ever participated in a cause like this and I feel so good about it as well as my family. This may have saved my sons’ lives due to the free screening that is also part of run.
It’s great, this is our 3rd year and we enjoy it more every year. What a great way to make friends with so many nice people and hear stories of their experiences.
