Join us and many other celebrity participants for the 2013 event on May 4, 2013!

WHAT: The 2nd Annual Miles for Melanoma at Universal Studios 5K Run/Walk - a 5K run/walk that will allow participants to experience the re-creation of Amityville Island from Jaws, Spartacus Square, and the village of Whoville. Funds raised through Miles for Melanoma go to support research, education and advocacy for melanoma. 

WHERE: Universal Studios Backlot, Hollywood, California 

WHEN: May 4th, 2013 Check-in and Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. Run/Walk begins at 8:30 a.m.

One-in-50 people will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime. The Miles for Melanoma at Universal Studios 5K Run/Walk will raise funds to fuel additional research for new and better treatment options, and support the MRF as the organization advocates for the melanoma community and educate people about the prevention and diagnosis of the disease.

•All participants will also receive special race-day t-shirt, sunscreen samples and educational information about melanoma prevention and treatment.
