About the Walk

The UC San Diego Bruce Gorder 5K Walk for Melanoma exists to educate people about the dangers of melanoma by promoting awareness, prevention and early detection. We provide free skin cancer screenings by local and UC San Diego Dermatologists. Since the Walk’s inception, we have screened more than 2,000 people. Many early melanomas have been spotted that might have been missed without the Walk.
