After two years of virtual challenges, the BRIGHT Walk became a physical event in 2022, a night-time walk coinciding with Illuminate Adelaide.
This year’s 15km-walk took place on 22 July and featured even in more lights! A big thank you to everyone who took part on the night, and for raising over $380k to help SAHMRI cure disease and save lives.

FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE
The BRIGHT Walk is an epic one-night challenge, raising funds to help SAHMRI cure disease and save lives.
This year, the event took place on Saturday 22 July. The 15km route took walkers past dozens of dazzling displays in the Illuminate Adelaide festival, plus exclusive experiences lighting up the darkness with life and colour.
Facing mental and physical health disorders, both personally or as a loved one of someone who is, can be a dark road. Health and medical research give us hope. The BRIGHT Walk is a metaphor for this challenging journey, marching a long road at night through the middle of winter, side by side with a united community.
The money raised goes to SAHMRI’s researchers, pushing towards life-saving discoveries, bringing us all closer to a brighter, healthier future.
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 have been a more perfect backdrop for the BRIGHT Walk?
Participants walked past a number of the Illuminate Adelaide installations, as well as some exciting extras created exclusively for the event.
