JOIN US FOR BRIGHT!


Are you up for a memorable and inspiring winter evening walk in Adelaide this July, winding your way past a dazzling array of spectacular music and light installations, including the best of Illuminate Adelaide’s City Lights?

“We have a slightly shorter and more child-friendly route this year, so bring your whole family along too – the more the merrier. It’s an experience you won’t forget!

“By taking part and fundraising for us, you’ll be supporting SAHMRI researchers in their quest to help us all not just live longer, but live better too.

“Hoping to see you there!”

– Rebecca, SAHMRI’s BRIGHT Walk Coach (and Evie her dog)

GIVING BACK

“I was diagnosed with leukaemia nine years ago and the treatment I received was developed here in Adelaide. I take part in the BRIGHT Walk to give back to medical research so others can also benefit from ground-breaking discoveries and treatments.”

Michelle isn’t a doctor, a scientist or a medical researcher but she can walk – so she does. Michelle does the BRIGHT Walk because that’s how she can help. Last year, she and her team the Blue Sky Babes raised over $3,500 for medical research at SAHMRI.

Sign up today to help bring light and hope to thousands of families facing life-threatening diseases.
