Make a difference! Join Team Melanoma Know More (MKM) in the race against melanoma at the 2017 Flying Pig Marathon.

There is an event for everyone: 5k, 10k, relay, half-marathon, and full-marathon. We have participants of all abilities who participate and raise funds to support Melanoma Know More.

If this is your first event, we will show you the way! We will provide you with information regarding available training resources in our community, tools to assist you with your fundraising efforts, access to our Flying Pig Victory Party after the race and an orange race-day shirt. These orange shirts will help you spot your fellow Team MKM teammates on the course.

As a result of funds raised through Team MKM, we are able to promote awareness, support community and youth education, fund critical research, provide free screening clinics and facilitate patient and family outreach activities. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of $250.

Each participant will be able to create their own personal and/or team fundraising webpage, which will make it easy for family, friends, and co-workers to support you in your event. Friends and family that are unable to physically participate in an event can still help fundraise by becoming "virtual participants" and can create their own fundraising webpage as well.

If you have been touched by melanoma, JOIN US! Many will participate to honor the memory of a loved one that lost the fight. Some will support family members or friends who are currently battling melanoma, and some participate because THEY are currently fighting or have won their battle.

If you currently have melanoma or have won your battle, you are considered a "Melanoma Warrior." We run and walk for many reasons, but supporting these "Warriors" is the reason we continue to fight and support the mission of Melanoma Know More.  All Warriors will receive additional recognition and a special race-day shirt!
