Join us on April 28, 2018 to Save the Skin You're In!
Register for our annual 5K run/walk and help raise awareness and funds for melanoma skin cancer. Proceeds raised will stay in the local community and benefit the Melanoma and Immunotherapy Fund at Carolinas HealthCare System's Levine Cancer Institute. So far MAM NC has donated over $150,000 to the fund. Each participant that registers before April 1st will be guaranteed to receive an SPF tech t-shirt. Prizes will be awarded by Omega Sports for the overall winners and age group winners.

Fundraise with us!
It is easy to set up your very own fundraising page and send that link to your friends and family. Prizes will be given to the top 5 fundraisers this year. Create your page today!
Volunteer with us!
If you want to help our cause but can't participate in the 5K, join our volunteer crew. This is a great way for students to earn service hours or for families and businesses to give back to their community. Each CREW member will receive a t-shirt!
Our event wouldn't be possible without our sponsors. Our past events have seen nearly a thousand participants, volunteers, and others cheering on and supporting their loved ones. Sponsors have the ability to be part of our finish line vendor village and be able to reach out to everyone there.
In memory of Amy Robinson
Miles Against Melanoma NC was created in honor of my sister, Amy Jo Robinson. She was first diagnosed with melanoma when she was just a junior in high school after a biopsy was performed on a mole she had removed. Her lymph nodes were removed from the surrounding area and she was in remission for over 10 years until it came back in her lungs and eventually took her life. Amy was only 30 years old when she died. Miles Against Melanoma NC is dedicated to raising the public's awareness of melanoma and funds for its research so no one else will have to suffer like Amy. Thank you so much for your support!
Please consider participating, volunteering, or sponsoring our event. Proceeds will benefit the Levine Cancer Institute and other initiatives to increase the public's awareness of melanoma and the damaging effects of the sun and tanning beds.
