What are Shine a Light Walks?

On the first weekend of November, we invite every Australian touched by lung cancer to join us in Shining a Light.

The community walks aim to raise awareness, break stigma, and provide a place of support & to remember your loved ones who have been affected by lung cancer. Join us on a community led walk to support the 13,250 Australians diagnosed every year. A vigil will be held, where you will be welcomed to share, listen & to take a moment of silence to remember those that have passed.

Your registration for the walk is free.

It is essential you register so we can comply with the COVID-safe needs of your local government. However, if COVID-19 flares up in your state or we feel the conditions become unsafe we will make the walks virtual. Our priority is to keep the community safe. We will communicate any changes that are made. To keep up with the latest updates please register for your local event or follow the event on Facebook HERE.
