Join Team Mela-NO-More and help raise funds for Cancer Research at Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center. Celebrate your fund raising efforts and go for a ride.....12, 25, or 50 miles through the beautiful scenic Oley Valley.
This is a ride to celebrate your hard work. The obstacles you will face for 12, 25, or 50 miles, are nothing in comparison to the obstacles a patient/survivor faces daily.
Your participation fuels the research that will deliver breakthroughs!
As most of you know, I am a melanoma success story! I have an amazing team of doctors and the research and trials at Penn have benefited me personally. I am a huge advocate for skin checks (with a doctor or yourself) and protecting your skin! SPF it up!!!
Thanks for joining me and spreading awareness!
