Support our Walk Across the Neck of Scotland
A group of doctors, staff, friends and colleagues are trekking across the neck of Scotland to raise much-needed funds for our research and education programs at the Skin & Cancer Foundation.
The funds raised will be used to continue our ground-breaking research into skin diseases, skin cancer and melanoma. We also want to extend the training we are providing to GPs across Australia, to improve their early detection, treatment and management of skin cancer and inflammatory skin diseases.
The walk will take 7 days and 8 nights in June 2019, crossing Scotland from Fort William on the west coast to Inverness on the east coast of Scotland. It will take us 127km, along the great fault line along the complete lengths of Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Oich. It is one of Scotland’s four great long-distance walks (see map below).
More Australians die from melanoma than from road accidents each year. An average of 30 people are diagnosed with melanoma every day, and one in seventeen will be diagnosed with melanoma before age 85.
The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc plays an important role in the clinical treatment, research and education of skin cancer and melanoma. It is making some significant inroads with its research and education. But it is a not-for-profit and receives no government funding.
You can help.
The challenge for each of our trekkers is to raise $3,000 in sponsorship for their walk. Every cent raised goes directly to the Foundation for this research and education.
Please help our walkers reach their goal. Any donation of $2.00 or more is tax deductible.
