Grassroots Activities

Want to know how you can help transform melanoma from one of the deadliest cancers into one of the most treatable? Join hundreds of other MRF volunteers who make a difference in the fight against melanoma by starting a fundraiser near you! Create your own event or join a Miles for Melanoma team at a local 5K run/walk, and raise funds and awareness at the same time! 

Each year our grassroots fundraisers raise almost a quarter million dollars to support the MRF’s mission. They do this by hosting cookouts, organizing group bike rides, dart or poker tournaments, attending professional sports games and many other creative events

The MRF has created planning documents, fundraising suggestions, logos and other tools that will help you create a successful fundraising event. To get started, email for these helpful resources!
