  • Each year families who have been affected by melanoma are invited to gather at the “This Run’s For Jack” Family Tent to meet one another, the doctors and our board members. The tent serves as a place of respite, offering food, coffee and friendship to those whom melanoma has touched. A special thank you to committee chairs, Ashley LeClair, Kristen Novak, Christy Peterson, Jennifer Howard, Tia Simon, for their welcoming and heartfelt touches inside and out.
