Gear 1 : Check out your Dark Instinct

Everyone has a dark side although it may not be immediately obvious. What kind of dark instincts do you have? Find out which animals best represent you in terms of your attitudes to work, love, friendship and your own self-image. Unleash your repressed instincts and show us your power in the dark.

Gear 2: Download the Moonwalkers mobile app after enrollment

Download the official mobile app "Moonwalkers" after enrollment. It contains many eccentric and fun functions for your entertainment: everything from a photo gadget that allows you to feature yourself amongst nocturnal animals, to an electronic passport to collect dark instinct stamps, allowing you to record and share your dark movements with your friends.

*The apps will be ready for download by end of September

Gear 3: Dress-up in bright to ignite the darkness

To match with this year's theme, participants are encouraged to dress-up in brightly colored clothing to ignite the darkness. For those of you that are daring enough, be sure to join the great "Red carpet" event of Moonwalkers: Best Dressed Hero Team Award. Our volunteers will be on hand to take eye-catching pre-walk souvenir snaps for all participating teams. Holding aloft the Moonwalkers Hero Trophy, the winning team will subsequently lead walkers off into the night as "navigators," as the event gets underway.
