SAHMRI’s BRIGHT Walk returns to Adelaide

Join SAHMRI's BRIGHT Walk on Saturday 6th of July, for an 11-kilometre night-time trek through Adelaide, supporting vital medical research.

Adelaide’s streets will light up once again as SAHMRI’s BRIGHT Walk returns on July 6th, 2024. This annual event brings together thousands of South Australians in a night-time walking challenge to support vital medical research.

The BRIGHT Walk is an 11-kilometre walk that begins at sunset and continues well into the night, guiding participants through some of Adelaide’s most iconic locations. Starting and finishing at SAHMRI’s distinctive “cheese-grater” building, walkers will experience the city in a whole new light—literally. The route is designed to be both challenging and enjoyable, with plenty of opportunities to take in the sights and sounds of Adelaide after dark.

The event is more than just a walk; it’s a community movement aimed at raising funds for the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). Participants are encouraged to gather sponsorships from friends, family, and colleagues, all of which go directly to supporting SAHMRI’s cutting-edge research. This research spans a wide range of areas, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and mental health.

The BRIGHT Walk is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Whether you’re a seasoned walker or someone looking to take on a new challenge, this event offers a unique way to contribute to a good cause while getting some exercise. Families, friends, and even corporate teams often join together, making it a fun and social event as well.

Participants can look forward to a well-organised event with plenty of support along the way. There will be rest stops with refreshments, first aid stations, and plenty of volunteers to guide and cheer on the walkers. And for those who might need a bit of extra motivation, the knowledge that they’re contributing to life-saving research is a powerful incentive.

Signing up for the BRIGHT Walk is straightforward. Interested participants can register online at the SAHMRI BRIGHT Walk website. Once registered, walkers are provided with all the information and resources they need to start fundraising and prepare for the event.

The BRIGHT Walk is a fantastic opportunity to support SAHMRI’s mission while enjoying a unique experience in the heart of Adelaide. By participating, you’re not only challenging yourself but also making a real difference in the lives of countless people. So, lace up your walking shoes and get ready to light up the night for a good cause.
