BENEFITING: Melanoma Foundation of New England
ORGANIZER: Melanoma Foundation of New England
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am thrilled to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon for the Melanoma Foundation of New England! This will be my 4th marathon and 3rd Boston Marathon. Being a member of Team Running for Cover and raising funds to support the MFNE's mission means a great deal to me. I am a nurse working in a dermatology office and am passionate about skin cancer prevention and patient education. I have seen firsthand how early detection can save lives.
PLEASE consider making a donation to support my fundraising efforts for the MFNE. Many companies match employees' charitable contributions. THANK YOU!!
The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidence of melanoma through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the importance of protecting their skin and dangers of tanning; The Skinny On Skin, educating beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients; and Practice Safe Skin Sunscreen providing free sunscreen to communities for their beaches, parks, sports fields and more. MFNE also offers support for patients and their caregivers through support groups and its one-on-one Billy's Buddies program. All programs are free!
