Official Charity: Wings for Life
“I became an ambassador for Wings For Life in 2011 after I broke my back in a horse riding accident. Although damaging my spinal cord I narrowly escaped paralysis, and have been fortunate enough to recover to the point where I have been able to compete in races again. Through Wings For Life I am able to focus my energy on helping those who have been less fortunate than myself. Every penny raised goes directly into research for Spinal Cord Injuries. Please take the time to visit the website and learn more about this great charity.”
Wings For Life is a spinal cord research foundation dedicated to finding effective treatments for spinal cord injuries. Every year 130,000 people survive a spinal cord injury and Wings for Life is working to improve their lives, and those of nearly 3 million people living with the injury worldwide. The money we raise funds cutting-edge research projects and clinical trials worldwide, with increasing success every year. We are grateful to our founders for generously covering our overheads so that every penny raised goes into the research.
We look forward to welcoming you to our team! Please send us your stories and pictures and we’ll be there to cheer you on the day.
