The vision and mission of the Bill Walter III Melanoma Research Fund is to help find a cure for melanoma by supporting promising melanoma research. The Fund also assists melanoma patients who are  undergoing treatment, and endeavors to save lives by raising awareness of the dangers of melanoma. 

Our mission is in memory of Bill Walter III who died from malignant melanoma in 1998 after a long fight. Now we fight the fight for Bill and all the others out there who have or had loved ones with this terrible disease.

The Bill Walter Melanoma Research Fund (BWMRF) has awarded $80,000 to 38 melanoma patients since it began in 1998. Many of these recipients are from the front range of Colorado.

The BWMRF has awarded $200,000 to research through medical grants and clinical trials.

In 2008, the Ft. Collins "Rayz Awareness of Melanoma" 4K Run/Walk & 1K Fun Run Event raised nearly $11,000.
