Steps Against Melanoma Walks
For many years, AIM at Melanoma’s walks have been a symbol of hope and support for our community. We have walked in rain, wind, sleet, and sunshine, always with the same goal in mind, to fund lifesaving melanoma research.
We know that for many, concerns about COVID-19, are top of mind. The health and well-being of the event participants, volunteers, staff, and the melanoma community are AIM’s top priority. While much remains unknown about the COVID-19 virus, we want to be vigilant. We also recognize that many of our participants and their families are part of the most susceptible audience to this virus.
To promote the safety and well-being of our participants, the 2020 Steps Against Melanoma walks will be held as unified, virtual events. In lieu of large gatherings in your community, we welcome you to walk in a location that’s safe for you. The program and festivities held at the parks have been canceled, but we hope you will still walk, whether from your home, neighborhood, or favorite trails, you can still participate and support our work.
The Steps Against Melanoma Walks remain a significant part of our community and an important fundraising component for the services we provide. We hope that despite this year’s event changes, you will still unite with us to support melanoma prevention, treatment, and research.
Why We Walk
Steps Against Melanoma participants share reasons why they are walking in their local Steps Against Melanoma event. Some walk to celebrate their own victory over melanoma, and some walk to honor and remember those who have overcome melanoma, are currently fighting it, or are no longer with us. Please join us in the fight to #endmelanoma. (Click the image below to hear from our 2020 coordinators)
