It is with great pride that we announce the 2nd Annual Amanda Wall-Corey Haddon Memorial Walk, benefiting the Melanoma Research Foundation. This event will be held October 13, 2012 at 9:00 AM at Apex United Methodist Church, 100 S Hughes Street, Apex, NC, 27502.
We invite you to participate in this event by becoming a sponsor. Major strides are being made in melanoma research. With your support, the MRF can fund research that will unlock the mysteries of this devastating disease and lead to better treatment options, and eventually, a cure. At our event in 2011 we raised over $28,000 for this research effort. This year our sights are set higher for this great cause.
Every hour of every day, someone dies of melanoma in the United States. Melanoma strikes people of all ages, all races, all economic levels and both sexes. It is the most common cancer for women 25-29 and the second most common cancer for women 30-34. The incidence of melanoma is increasing faster than any other cancer and an American’s lifetime risk of developing melanoma is one in 60.
The Melanoma Research Foundation, a national non-profit health organization, has as its’ mission to advance melanoma research, education and advocacy. As the voice of the melanoma community, their goal is to grow the base of support, gain wider public attention and raise the funds to provide new, effective treatments and find a cure for melanoma. They are also committed to the expansion of educational programs for patients and their families, as well as for healthcare professionals who are involved in their care and treatment.
Our success lies in the hands of generous donors like YOU. We hope you’ll consider sponsoring this event. If you have any questions, I can be reached at: 919-274-8337
