Million Metres for Melanoma Ball

September 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

$160 – $1500


Join us for the 2018 Million Metres for Melanoma (MM4M) Ball at the Royal International Convention Centre on Saturday 22 September 2018.

This Black tie dinner is part of the fundraising efforts of twelve medical doctors from various specialties who will be attempting to break the Guinness world record for the fastest team to run one million metres on 16 October 2018.  They will be doing this on a treadmill at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.  The current world record stands at 82 hours.

The purpose of the world record attempt and Ball is to raise money to set up a new melanoma unit at RBWH which will help individuals and families in their fight against melanoma – a disease from which one Queenslander dies every day.

All 12 doctors are from Queensland and their aim is to raise $250,000 to help change the statistics.

Tickets for the 2018 Million Metres for Melanoma Ball are $160 each or buy 10 tickets (if there are enough left!) to make a full table.

What’s included in the ticket price:

  • Three-course meal with gourmet, locally-sourced and farm fresh ingredients
  • Four hour drinks package
  • Live entertainment
  • And one hell of a good night – and since the sun is not up then, there’s no need to slip, slop slap!  Just throw on your best threads and come join us on the mission to find a cure.
