Organised by Melanoma Institute Australia in partnership with MelanomaWA, the march aims to raise money for research.

Money raised will go towards Big Data for Melanoma to transform the way patients are treated.

The project will work to link participating melanoma centres across Australia and analyse how the cancer is treated.

It is hoped the insights learnt will reduce the incidence of the most dangerous form of skin cancer.

The march will also raise awareness about the importance of early detection and to remember those who have died from the disease. Melanoma is dubbed “Australia’s national cancer” and claims the life of one person every six hours.

The local march will be the first of 24 planned for this year.

The special guest will be the founder and MelanomaWA chief executive Clinton Heal.
