Miles for Melanoma 5 Run/Walk a Huge Success!
CCMAC’s 6th Annual Long Island miles for melanoma run walk was held at on May 15th, 2010 at Eisenhower Park, in East Meadow, NY.. It was the first year CCMAC partnered with the Long Island Road Runners Club, and added a Run in addition to their customary walk. Teams of runners and walkers participated from all over the tri state area.
Runners, walkers and spectators attending the Miles for Melanoma Run/Walk, are always struck by the “In Memory Of” and “In Honor Of” signs that loved ones have sponsored along the Run/Walk Pathway.
Melanoma Run/Walk saw an increase in the number of groups and teams running and walking in memory of loved ones who have died as a result of Skin Cancer /Melanoma, or in support of their friends and loved ones who continue to battle the illness, or who are in submission.
