Mission for melanomaWA is back for 2020!

We are pleased to announce that the 5th Mission for melanomaWA (M4mWA) will be held on Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 October 2020. M4mWA is a life-changing ride to make a difference for the WA melanoma community.

M4mWA promises to be a fun and challenging adventure. It’s a two-day 160km off-road cycling event, from Swan View to Northam and return, through the John Forrest National Park along the picturesque Kep Track.

This year’s M4mWA is dedicated to Aaron Wilson, Operations Manager at melanomaWA, who sadly lost his life to melanoma in 2019, aged 38.

All funds raised will help provide vital melanoma community nursing services to support WA melanoma patients and carers.

Melanoma is the most common cancer affecting 15 to 39-year-old Australians and one Australian is diagnosed with melanoma every 30 minutes. WA is second only to Queensland in terms of melanoma incidence in Australia.

There are many ways you can be a part of Mission for melanomaWA:

  1. Register as a rider and set up your fundraising page
    Be a part of the adventure and register to ride as an individual, or as part of a team. We recommend riding a bike with 32mm+ tyres.
    M4mWA is a ‘boutique’ event where we want all riders to enjoy a unique experience. Given the heritage nature of the track, the event is limited to 50 riders, so don’t miss out!
    There is a registration fee of $100 per rider, which includes cycling kit (shirt and shorts), overnight lodge accommodation, BBQ dinner, breakfast and refreshments.
    Each rider has a target to raise $1500, but don’t worry, we’ll help you by assisting with setting up your own fundraising page (that’s the easy part!).
  1. Donate to M4mWA
    If you are not a rider, you can make a difference by donating to a rider you know, or by making a general donation to M4mWA. Every donation helps and donations over $2 are tax deductible.
  1. Be part of the support crew
    During the M4mWA event support crew volunteers play an important role behind the scenes. Please email us at wa@melanoma.org.au if you are interested in being part of the support crew.

melanomaWA has a mission to reduce the impact of melanoma in the WA community by directly supporting WA patients and their families. melanomaWA is now part of Melanoma Institute Australia, which means expanded services for the WA melanoma community.

Please support our Mission and change lives for WA melanoma patients.

There is still time to prepare! Please see our M4mWA website if you have any questions.
