We are thrilled to be able to support Wings for Life this year as our event charity partner. Every eight hours someone in the UK sustains a spinal cord injury and most become wheelchair users as a result. Spinal cord injury affects people of all ages and backgrounds and is most commonly caused through road traffic accidents, falls, illness or sports. Spinal cord injury happens in a moment, but the impact lasts a lifetime. After an injury most people live through months if not years of rehabilitative therapy. There is currently no medical treatment available to repair the injured spinal cord.
Wings for Life fund world class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at finding a cure for spinal cord injury. Their research focuses on how to minimise damage, stimulate repair and restore function after an injury to the spinal cord has been sustained. Scientists agree: injured neurons can regenerate. Wings for Life therefore believe that spinal cord injury will be curable one day.
