If you decide to come to Manly next weekend, you definitely should join the Melanoma March. Statistics do not look good at all: one person dies from melanoma every 6 hours.  That’s why once a year Australia unites to take action against Australia’s national cancer.

What is the main role of this event?  Not too many people know the fact that this walk is to remember those lost, raise awareness, and to help researchers find a way to end the battle against melanoma.  The event is about people and for people.  The great news is that all donations made will go to the continued research for a cure.  Many backpackers Manly are going to attend this event.
