Miles Against Melanoma Kc invites you and your company to be part of our annual fundraiser to benefit melanoma. Our event, MAM KC will be a 5k Walk/Run Kids Run family oriented health event. We are expecting participants from all over this year, including melanoma survivors, families (walking in memory or in support of a loved one), teams, healthcare providers and corporate representatives. This is not just a walk/run it is an event for the entire family!
The Miles Against Melanoma Kc event will raise money to support melanoma research, education and advocacy. We also assist families who are in financial need of help. Miles Against Melanoma is a 501c3 health organization. We can supply our EIN upon request.
