The Melanoma Foundation is no longer accepting applications for the 2014 Boston Marathon. Qualified runners that have been accepted in the 2014 Boston Marathon are invited to contact us for more information about joining our team.
The Melanoma Foundation of New England was founded in 1999 to reduce the incidence of melanoma in the New England region.  We provide support and advocacy programs for melanoma patients and their loved ones and work to increase public awareness of sun-safe behavior and the importance of early detection.  Since our first runner crossed the finish line in 2005, our Running for Cover marathon team has raised over $1,000,000 to support our mission of education, prevention and support in the fight against melanoma.  Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer.  If caught early, most melanomas can be cured. Our goal is to make New England melanoma free.
