Benefiting

This year's race will once again honor our friend and fellow city employee, Neal Golden, after his courageous battle with melanoma cancer was lost in April 2010. The Melanoma International Foundation (MIF) was selected as a 501 (3) non-profit organization that serves the community at large as a valuable resource. They ease the burden of Melanoma and bring understanding to the journey. MIF develops, supports, and provides innovative programs for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of melanoma. In addition, MIF also has a special focus on navigating patients to clinical trials where we hope a viable treatment will be found with proper accrual to test out new therapies.

MIF was instrumental in procuring the first Department of Defense Congressionally Directed funding for research in 2010. MIF's outreach and intended audience is directed to melanoma patients, and their loved ones. They also collaborate with cancer related organizations, community hospitals and other allied professionals in the medical field. Visit the website at www.safefromthesun.org.
