It is estimated that more than 137,000 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in the United States this year. Learn about prevention and early detection of this deadly skin cancer. 

Our mission is to fight melanoma by increasing awareness and raising funds for research.

Rochester Melanoma Action Group is a licensee of Outrun the Sun, Inc., Race Against Melanoma which is dedicated to building awareness of melanoma and other skin cancers, educating communities about preventive measures that reduce melanoma's incidence rate and raising funds for melanoma research, leading to effective treatments and a cure.

There are many ways to work with us in our fight against melanoma.  We need race day volunteers, exhibitors, and sponsors.  We look forward to working with you!

Our annual "Outrun the Sun, Race Against Melanoma- Rochester" took place on August 7, 2015 at Webster Park in Rochester, NY. A good time was has by all, and more than $40,000 was raised for Melanoma research!
