Host an Event In Support Of Melanoma

Wouldn’t it be great to give back to the community while at the same time honouring someone with a special event in support of melanoma?

From hockey and golf tournaments to birthday and dinner parties, there are many events that allow you to gather with friends and family, raise money for a noble cause, and rally around someone going through their cancer journey.

Of course, with any event comes planning and organization, and the Melanoma Network of Canada (MNC) team is here to help. We have everything you need to get started on planning a successful event, from theme ideas to organizer’s checklists.

Here’s our guide[1] to a great event:

  1. Let Us Know About Your Event
  2. Form A Committee
  3. Set The Date and Venue
  4. Set Your Fundraising Goal and Budget
  5. Do You Need A License?
  6. Use of Melanoma Network of Canada Name and Logo
  7. Promote Your Event
  8. After the Event
  9. Have Fun!

Remember, with the funds raised through these events, we can strengthen and expand our patient programs across the country and develop more prevention and awareness campaigns to help decrease melanoma rates in our lifetime.

Please join us in theght against melanoma!

“It was an incredible experience; the sense of community was overwhelming. I’ve been teaching indoor cycling for 16 years, as an athlete and motivator I represented the epitome of health, so to many they were stunned that I was the face of cancer. As the event approached, I wasn’t sure if I’d have the courage to share my story but the immense curiosity surrounding melanoma had to be answered. On that day, we rode our bikes for those that had won, lost and those currently in the fight. IT WAS INCREDIBLE!! I was honoured and humbled that I was given the privilege.” – Anita DiMambro on hosting a third party fundraiser

“For our 2nd Axe Out Melanoma fundraiser in May 2019, we were able to raise close to five thousand dollars. We are looking forward to this year and what it will bring.”  – Mark Newell on hosting his second fundraiser for MNC
