Our event is secure and we believe it to be a safe area, but we cannot be responsible for any items left at the event space while you are out on course.

TEAMS:

Teams of 2 or more, who have raised $100 or more, will have team signs made so you can find each other in the team meeting area. Please use this area for photos or gathering or whatever you need, consider it yours! Team signs were ordered from our printer on Friday, April 19th, any team created after that date may not have a sign in the team meeting area.

Each team member will be expected to check in at the Packet Pick-up table as an individual before proceedig to the team area.

About melanoma:

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and is the leading cancer diagnosis for women in their twenties. It is also becoming more common – a trend that event attendees will help turn around by helping to raise funds for new and better treatments.
