The MARCH for MELANOMA campaign started in Melbourne, Victoria by the Emily Tapp Melanoma Foundation in 2007 in honour of lost loved ones. The event was established to help raise awareness about melanoma and skin cancer in addition to providing support for survivors.

In 2007 and 2008, the Foundation had the support of the Western Bulldogs Football Club (AFL) and in 2008 and 2009 also gained the support of Julia Morris (Actor & Comedian) for the event. The 2010 MARCH for MELANOMA was dedicated to women impacted by melanoma. In 2011 the march focused on men and melanoma. In 2012 the 6th annual MARCH for MELANOMA relocated to its new home at the Cantani Gardens, St Kilda, where an enthusiastic crowd enjoyed a 4km walk and 8km run in perfect conditions.

The 2013 event March Against Melanoma™ promises to continue on the success of this event. Located in St Kilda Melbourne, the march will consist of a 4km walk along the beach front esplanade. Upon completion of the march a remembrance service will be held followed by industry guest speakers and a FREE melanomore concert featuring local acts and entertainment for all including food and refreshments to enjoy!
