16th Annual Block Melanoma Sunday, May 17th, 2020 • Participate from wherever you would like!
Join us on Sunday, May 17th, 2020 for the 16th Annual Block Melanoma 5K Run & 3K Walk and the TEAM CATHY Kids Fun Run and help us to continue funding groundbreaking melanoma research
Since 2005, Ann’s Hope Foundation has been dedicated to generating support and funding for melanoma cancer research, education, and awareness. We have made the difficult decision to make the 16th Annual Block Melanoma Run and Walk a virtual event this year. Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, and The Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ mandate prohibiting public gatherings, we’ve made the decision to move the event from the Milwaukee County Zoo to a virtual event.
What does this mean? We encourage you to still register for the event (if you have not done so yet), and to participate by fundraising, creating a team and striving to help raise funds during this difficult time. We encourage you to give hope to those who are battling melanoma currently and remember loved ones lost to this horrible disease. As in years past, top fundraisers will receive Block Melanoma swag for their efforts. Post your own photos on the Ann’s Hope Foundation Facebook page on May 17th of walking or running with your team or family! Post on your Instagram and Facebook page and use hashtags to share with your friends and family that you are still lifting others to have hope for a cure.
As we know more about recommendations and changes we will continue to keep you informed. Our “Virtual Run/Walk” price is a reduced fee. We hope you will help us to continue to raise funds for needed research and awareness of melanoma.
The foundation provides funds to noteworthy melanoma research determined by the board of directors. In recent years, Ann’s Hope Foundation has been awarding seed grants at the Medical College of Wisconsin as well as funds for clinical trials at UW Carbone Cancer Center.
With gratitude and thanks,
