Results in for 1st Annual Miles for Melanoma 5K/1MI Walk in Seattle!
Results are now in for the 1st Annual Miles for Melanoma 5K run and 1 mile run walk!
The race was held on July 14th in conjunction with the SDPA Summer Conference in Seattle, Washington. SDPA members, friends of the the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), and others from Seattle took off from the start line at 6:30am. The course was enjoyed at Myrtle Edwards / Olympic Sculpture Park.
In this above photo, the racers are taking off from the start line. Runners and walkers enjoyed a waterfront view as they ran, even if it was a bit foggy in gorgeous Seattle.
Even more, by participating in this race, the SDPA and friends contributed to the Melanoma Research Foundation, as MRF works to Research, Advocate, and Educate about the dangers of Melanoma.
Congratulations to our top 3 winners in each event from the SDPA!

Did you know that the MRF has teamed up with Ironman triathalons throughout the USA to provide free melanoma screening for Ironman participants? This is an amazing partnership, and they need our help to volunteer to help with these melanoma screenings. At least 3 events remain between August and October.
The more PA volunteers we can get involved, more exposure we get and opportunities for educating people about dermatology PAs!
If you are interested in volunteering with MRF as an SDPA member at any of the following Ironman events, please contact Carolyn Edrington at firstname.lastname@example.org
