FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE

The BRIGHT Walk 2022 is a powerful, illuminated one-night experience on 23 July, aiming to raise $500,000 for lifesaving medical research.

Thousands of South Australians will rise to the challenge of walking 21km at night in the middle of winter.

Starting in the cold and dark, sponsored walkers will be immersed in illuminate Adelaide’s spectacular light features and experience exclusive installations getting brighter and brighter along the route.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES

The money you raise on the BRIGHT Walk pushes us a step closer to our next life-changing discovery and a brighter future.

Your support helps us develop pilot projects and leverage funding from national bodies.

It also gives a real boost to our fantastic researchers starting their careers with SAHMRI, empowering them to seek new insights and new discoveries.

ADELAIDE IN LIGHTS

Illuminate Adelaide, which takes place throughout July, is ‘a beacon, an invitation, a city-wide spectacle of art, light, sound and imagination, daring you to shake off the winter blues and rekindle a sense of wonder’.

Could there be a more perfect backdrop for the BRIGHT Walk?

You’ll be walking past a number of the Illuminate Adelaide installations, as well as some exciting extras created exclusively for the BRIGHT Walk.

The route map will be available to download before the event.
