BENEFITING: MELANOMA EDUCATION FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: MELANOMA EDUCATION FOUNDATION INC
Hello - I'm Jayne ..... and I am delighted to be running the 2016 New York Marathon on 6th November!
As a UK runner, NYC is my ‘dream run’ - and it is my absolute privilege to be running it as part of the Melanoma Education Foundation (MEF) Team.
MEF is a non-profit preventive health organisation that saves lives by promoting greater awareness of melanoma and the importance of early self-detection. Melanoma is one of the deadliest forms of cancer in the world today, but is also one of the most preventable - early detection can increase chances of survival from under 15% to 98%. The goal of the MEF is to educate the next generation on proper skin care and cancer prevention through school visits, teaching self-check techniques to increase early detection and offering scanning services.
Thank you for any donation you are able to make, to help me help MEF.
