Follow the footsteps of the past along one of the world’s oldest pilgrimage routes, the El Camino, and unleash your inner superhero as you raise money for NeuRA to help change the lives of thousands of Australians struggling with mental illness.

Lace up your hiking boots and step back in time as you embark on a 10-day adventure through Spain’s most famous pilgrimage trail.

On arrival in Madrid, Spain’s colourful capital city, you will set off on a guided tour, exploring the city’s highlights from past to present. You will then travel beyond city limits to follow the footsteps of the Romans, the Knights Templar, pilgrims and modern day adventurers on the Camino de Santiago!
From Sarria to Santiago, you will be swept away by Spain’s spectacular landscapes through the tranquil Galician countryside. You will pass medieval villages where you’ll discover Romanesque churches and traditional restaurants that specialise in home-cooked Spanish delicacies. In the eve, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine alongside NeuRA’s inspiring supporters.

Best of all, you will unleash your inner superhero by raising vital funds for NeuRA to support the lives of thousands of Australians struggling with mental illness.

Our researchers are our greatest asset. At NeuRA we seek to attract and retain the very best and brightest PhD students from within Australia and around the world. We do this because outstanding research brings us that much closer to discovering, conquering and curing those conditions that affect our mental health. Without the necessary funding, we would be unable to help these young, vibrant researchers in providing them with scholarships.

Meet Hayley- PhD Student working in the mental illness research lab at NeuRa.

 “Receiving a NeuRA scholarship has helped launch the first stage of my career. Without this additional support, I would not be able to fully focus on my research and instead have to work part-time jobs to support myself and take valuable time away from the lab”

By joining the Lighting The Way For Mental Health: El Camino 2019 challenge, you will help support young researchers working in the area of the mental illness research, giving them the opportunity to pursue their passion for science and their desire to find cures.
