Million Meters for Melanoma
When 31-year-old Phoebe Eales had a mole removed during a regular skin check she received the devastating news it was melanoma. After countless check-ups, scans and therapy Phoebe’s battle with melanoma ended just over a year later when this aggressive disease took her life.
During her final days, she reached out to her brother-in-law Chris Conyard asking him to help others who were also fighting melanoma.
Chris and 11 of his mates had the idea to run a million meters on a treadmill and raise funds for Melanoma Research. They trained and raised funds for nine months ahead of the gruelling three-day challenge where they smashed the world record for running one million meters on a treadmill and also raised over $300,000 for Melanoma research at the RBWH.
