Dr. William P. Baugh of MelanomaCure.org and Full Spectrum Dermatology began hosting the very first 5k to raise funds for awareness, education and research in 2006. To our surprise, the first race had 200 participants! Ten years later we have grown! Dr. Baugh founded MelanomaCure.org in 2010. Through the iCureMelanoma 5k Race, our nonprofit foundation is reaching out to thousands across the country! Last year there were close to 2,000 participants and over 3,000 people in attendance. Through our generous sponsors, donors and valued participants we have been able to make sizable donations for research at the University level.
MelnomaCure.org is a registered charitable non-profit organization founded in 2010 (EIN# 27-4331767). MelanomaCure.org was created with the purpose of assuring donations go directly toward education and research to find a cure for melanoma. Through our various activities which have included the iCureMelanoma 5k, Golf Tournaments and Skin Cancer Screenings we have created awareness, generated research revenue and developed a community of hope for survivors and family members who have lost loved ones.
