Jay Allen has battled melanoma and won.
He is doing an epic 2000km, 50-day trek from Adelaide to Sydney, and needs your help.
Sign up now to walk a day with Jay and help raise awareness and funds for a world class melanoma research project.
Who is Jay?
Jay was just 32 years old when he was diagnosed with melanoma. He was your typical Aussie bloke – a husband, dad, son and mate to many. Overnight he went from being a truck driver to a cancer patient.
Jay underwent immediate surgery and treatment. 10 years on he is fighting fit, and is now fighting for another cause - to help raise awareness and find a cure for melanoma which kills one Australian every five hours.
Jay is a proud team member of Melanoma Institute Australia, with his other epic treks including:
- 2014 Sydney to Melbourne
- 2017 Brisbane to Sydney
When does it start?
The walk kicks off on 31st March at Henley Square in Adelaide, via Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong and finishes 2,000kms, 50 days later on the 19th May in Sydney.
