Charity Melanoma Institute of Australia
(Oct 2015) Barracudas have chosen Melanoma Institute of Australia as their chosen charity to fundraise for at our Inaugural Season Launch. Being a sport where our children are playing and training in the sun, we feel it is vital for the kids to understand the danger of the sun on their skin, and to know about early detection for themselves AND their teammates.
Did you know that 25% of melanomas are detected by someone other than the person affected i.e. a friend, partner or family member?
