Our Mission

To all my loyal support team for Melanoma it is with a heavy heart we will no longer organize our 5k run/ walk. We will continue to update melanoma as we get new procedures. I want to thank my family, volunteers, runners, walkers, and sponsors for everything the did for our organization! If you would need to ask a questions or donation email me at I would like to put together bags to help melanoma patients in need of personal hygiene and something to make them smile. I also would like to help patients in stage 3&4 with paying a light bill ect.

Thank you,

Lynne Berend
