About  the Event


Exercise Your Mood Walk is Sydney’s ONLY half marathon moonlight walk, happening on Saturday 12 October from 6pm til late.

Grab your friends and take a journey under the stars through one of Australia’s largest urban parklands, while raising funds to help Black Dog Institute create a mentally healthier world. 

Sydney Olympic Park is a diverse and unique place where protected woodlands, rare salt marshes, waterbird refuges and mangroves live alongside iconic heritage places in a unique parkland setting.

Why support Black Dog Institute?

One in five Australians are affected by mental illness each year. Mental illness can be overwhelming, crippling and isolating. 65% of people with a mental illness do not seek help.

Black Dog Institute has a vision of a mentally healthier world. We bring together the strength of a medical research institute and a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by mental illness.

We aim to significantly reduce the incidence of mental illness and suicide, remove stigma and empower all people to live the most mentally healthy life possible.

By participating in Exercise Your Moodwalk, you're not only opening up much needed conversations around mental health  you're turning ground breaking research into life-saving action!
