Melanoma March will be held in West End Riverlands Park, Brisbane in 2015. Located on the banks of the picturesque Brisbane River, West End Riverlands Park is nestled in the trees, just around the riverbend from South Bank. This early morning riverside event is easy and great for the whole family. Taking part is not only good for your health, but you're also fundraising and raising awareness for Australia's national cancer! You're encouraged to take part as Australia unites to fight this devastating disease.
Melanoma March Brisbane participants will commence from Westend Riverlands Park, head south west to Orleigh Park before looping and returning to for post-march entertainment and refreshments.
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, Emma Betts, Sarah Nicholls and Cassie Murphy have all been impacted by melanoma in one way or another. All three women are Melanoma Institute Australia supporters hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma. Join these young ladies, their families and the team at Melanoma Institute Australia and march to one day find cure!
Located less than a 10 minute drive from Brisbane CBD, Westend Riverlands Park has ample surrounding street parking for those who choose to drive to the event. Please be mindful of parking regulations on some of the surrounding streets. Alternatively, buses regularly service this area please visit Translink.
