Share an unforgettable and illuminating experience with family and friends this July, while raising funds for life-saving research at SAHMRI.


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 the Illuminate Adelaide Festival?

“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 Roberts, Community Fundraising Officer, SAHMRI (and Evie her dog)



“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 walks because she is not gifted to be a medical researcher, scientist or doctor, but she can walk – so she does. 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.


The BRIGHT Walk is timed to coincide with the Illuminate Adelaide festival, with dazzling light installations and projections located all around the city’s streets and public buildings. There will also be additional installations for you to enjoy, created specially for the event.

Like a beacon of hope for those battling serious disease, SAHMRI’s iconic Cheesegrater awaits at the end of your challenge, lit up against the night sky and with food, drinks and a live band to help celebrate your achievement.

So come along with your friends and family, enjoy the spectacle and make a difference for medical research!
