Miles for Melanoma 5k Run/Walk on the Universal Studios Backlot

In 2012, the MRF embarked on a wonderful relationship with Universal Studios to host a 5k run/walk on the Universal Studios Backlot in Hollywood, California. Ever since then, event attendees have raised over $1,000,000 to advance melanoma research, education and advocacy! 

Attendees have had a blast running/walking through iconic scenes and sets from major movies and TV shows, including Gilmore Girls, Jaws, Spiderman, Charlie’s Angels, Bruce Almighty, Back to the Future, the War of the Worlds plane crash and the village of Whoville, just to name a few.  

Past celebrity supporters include: Rob Lowe, Judd Apatow, Sean Astin, Jason Bateman, Jason Biggs, Vin Diesel, Soleil Moon Frye, Jason George, Tyrese Gibson, Ashley Hinshaw, Jeannie Mai, Kellie Martin, Leslie Mann, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Fred Savage, Molly Sims, and more!

SAVE THE DATE: the 5th Annual Miles for Melanoma 5k Run/Walk on the Universal Studios Backlot is on Sunday, May 1st! Registration will open in late February 2016.
