“I love the fact that, through my research at SAHMRI, I get to find ways to make life better for children and that my work not only helps pregnant women and babies here in Australia, but it’s read and used around the world.

“I’m proud of what we do, and I want the community to understand how important our work is and how important they are to make sure we can keep doing it.”

– Dr Karen Best, Senior Research Fellow, SAHMRI (Women and Kids theme)

What?

The BRIGHT Walk is a powerful, illuminated, one night experience which challenges you to walk 21km at night in the middle of winter.

When and where?

The event will take place on the night of Saturday 23 July 2022 in Adelaide, to coincide with Illuminate Adelaide.

Why?

To raise funds to help SAHMRI’s BRIGHT and brilliant researchers create a brighter future for the people we love.

THE DIFFERENCE YOU’LL MAKE

The money you raise by taking part in the BRIGHT Walk will push our researchers at SAHMRI another step closer to the next life-changing discovery, another step closer to a brighter future. It will help us develop pilot projects, it will help us leverage support from national funding bodies, and it will give a boost to early and mid-career researchers.

Researchers such as Eugene Warrior, the Senior Engagement and Knowledge Broker within the Aboriginal Health Equity Theme. Eugene’s work is work is all about connecting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to research and services, ultimately helping to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health. He’s keen to be involved in the BRIGHT Walk in July:

I think it’s a great event. Raising awareness of the phenomenal work being done at SAHMRI, as well as funds to support it into the future, is crucial for our state.
