65 Volunteers 

gave up their time to prepare, set up, clean and work the 5K on race day

1213 Hours 

of volunteered time from the 4 board members

$21,000 Research Funding 

raised and donated to research 

At our second 5K and Family Fun Run, there were over 400 registered participants. Our free skin cancer screening found several pre-cancers and non-Melanoma skin cancers. The fun filled night included face painting, balloon artist, caricatures, live music, silent auction, local food trucks, kids characters, and walkers and runners of all ages. This event raised over $21,000 for Melanoma research at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO. 

Since Melanoma is one of the most preventable cancers, we have decided to direct more funding towards prevention. Effective 2020, our formally known Family Assistance Program, will be evolving to The Family and Community Assistance Program. This will allow us to provide the local communities' schools, preschools, and registered daycare centers with sunscreen and sunscreen dispensers. 

Our upcoming event is scheduled for September 19th, 2020, at Memorial Park in Jefferson City, MO. The sponsors of this event will have the option to designate how much of their funding is used for research or for prevention. 

If you would like to learn more about either sponsoring the 5K or sponsoring a sunscreen dispenser, please contact Amanda Peters at
