Your Next Step is the Cure will embark on its fifth year of bringing awareness and raising funds for a rare cancer called Ocular Melanoma. We are excited to have our same location, the lovely Park Square Plaza and a great shaded course to run! We are so grateful for last year’s efforts and the amount of money that we were able to raise for the Melanoma Research Foundation – CureOM. Ocular melanoma is a rare cancer that effects six out of one million people each year; while strides have been made, unfortunately there is still no known cure. We plan to hold another successful event but we know that our success comes from individuals like YOU!! Thank you for registering! Please spread the word….hopefully, some day soon we will have a cure for ocular melanoma!
