5th Annual Steps Against Melanoma virtual Walk

A walk for cause - with a twist! Saturday, Oct. 10 is the 5th Annual Steps Against Melanoma Virtual Walk!

To promote the safety and well-being of participants, the walk has gone virtual so you can participate where you feel comfortable and safe. The walk is done each year to help raise critical funds for the fight to end melanoma, with 100% of the net proceeds from this event supporting the Melanoma Program and tissue bank at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh.

AIM at Melanoma is a global foundation dedicated to finding more effective treatments and ultimately the cure for melanoma, while improving the lives of those it affects.

The Pittsburgh-based Woiner Foundation is proud to partner with AIM at Melanoma in their common mission to promote awareness and to fund melanoma research.
