We want everyone who takes part in Beard Season to save at least one life - every winter. Someone who might not be here if it weren’t for our friendly, furry advice. Each person saved adds to our #BeardSeasonVictories, the key KPI for our charity.
Alongside this, we’d love to pioneer a free national skin check program. Because if people are finding it hard to see a specialist, why not bring the specialist to the people. Making these appointments far more affordable and accessible.
We have trialled this program at various events around the country and results have been staggering. With up to a third of the people checked finding at least one suspect lesion.
If Beard Season can help lower the melanoma death rate in Australia (around the world) by increasing the rates of early detection - we will be very happy indeed.
