Great Chic Challenge for Melanoma 2018
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
About: Sunday, May 6 is the 9th Great Chic Challenge 5K/Auction to raise funds towards a cure for melanoma and help increase awareness for this disease. Join us at the Rio Washingtonian Center lake in Gaithersburg with your running shoes! All funds raised directly benefit the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), the nation's largest non-profit funder of melanoma research.
FUNDRAISING GOAL: Each participant is requested to raise $100 for MRA. Get the word out to family and friends for ten contributions of $10 or more - that's "10 for 10"!!
It’s Easy to Participate!
- Join a fundraiser team or set up your own.
- Make a donation.
- Support our silent auction.
Silent Auction: Fear not - for those who would rather shop for the cure than run, we will have an online auction once again. You can still join a fundraising team, too! Donations of auction items are most welcome. Stay tuned for details....
Sponsorships: Sponsorships are also encouraged. Thank you in advance to our wonderful Sponsors. You will be acknowledged individually in this space.
Ellen's Story: I am a two-time melanoma survivor and very lucky to still be here! As owner of the Chic to Chic ladies boutique, I founded The Great Chic Challenge 5K Walk/Jog/Run to give back and make a difference. ALL PROCEEDS fund much-needed research to cure this disease. With the support of Mike (my husband), family, and friends, every year has been more successful! We are counting on YOU to sign up for the 5K, donate whatever you can, and set up your own #10for10 team to make this OUR BEST YEAR YET!!! THANK YOU!!! XO Ellen
What We're Doing for Melanoma: The Melanoma Research Alliance is on the front lines of funding promising scientific research to develop effective new treatments for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Although rates are rising, especially in younger people, melanoma is highly curable when caught early. Thanks in part to research supported by MRA, treatments are improving rapidly. By keeping the best scientific researchers fully engaged, you can help wipe out skin cancer!
Please help us fight this disease with your contribution to the Melanoma Research Alliance. Every dollar brings us one step closer to a cure!
