Melanoma March Darwin has moved locations and will be hosted from Bicentennial Park on The Esplanade in Darwin City. Nestled into the parklands encompassing a number of war memorials, Melanoma Institute Australia and their local committee look forward to hosting the 2nd annual Melanoma March in Darwin.
Melanoma March Darwin will commence from Bicentennial Park and participants will head -- before looping and returning to the park for refreshments and entertainment.
In 2015, participants of the event are welcome to march, walk, stroll or even run the event. We encourage runners make their way to the front of the pack at the start of the event. Please note; this is not a timed event.
The hosts of this event Hayley Chalkley and Leonie Warburton have both been affected by the devastation that melanoma has on Australian society. Both Hayley and Leonie are dedicated supporters of Melanoma Institute Australia hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma. Both the Chalkley and Warburton families, along with the team at Melanoma Institute Australia encourage you to get involved and march to one day find cure!
Located minutes from Darwin's CBD, Bicentennial Park is highly accessible by car and bus. Please check bus services from the Transport NT website.

Sunscreen will be available at all events, but we suggest that you apply your sunscreen before leaving home. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses and remember your comfortable shoes.
