To run, to do something for a better tomorrow and to run with people that I love. It is something special because it is not about winning the race...but winning in life itself.

The day had many beautiful moments, from training to finish. It was amazing to celebrate the victory with the embrace of so many friends.

Nothing could hold me back. I had been waiting for the Wings For Life World Run for several months and was ready to push my body to the limit.

The opportunity to directly help a cause that affects me personally and gives me the opportunity to give an example to others that the limits are only in our heads.

Walking again will be the best feeling ever!

The fact that you were being chased by a Catcher Car with a celebrity in it was also VERY COOL.

Remigio and I promised from the beginning to run together. The first 70km were super with Remigio next to me.

I can’t tell you how true the Wings for Life World Run slogan rings true for me. I really am running for those who can’t.

Mike Shaw, Canadian ski coach

Everyone commented on the positive atmosphere and how great it was to be running 100% for a good cause. My personal belief in the Wings for Life foundation and my passion for running made the Wings for Life World Run a no-brainer for me.

Astrid Kaltenböck, Local winner in Brazil 2015 and Verona 2014

Running is so much easier when you know it's for such a good cause!

Kenny Belaey, Ieper, Belgium

I’m very happy and moved to be a part of this amazing cause. I got goosebumps when the race started, but to have the opportunity to be in the car and thank everyone personally when the Catcher Car passed them, that was amazing.

Catcher Car driver, Adolfo Aguilar in Lima, Peru

Goosebumps. Emotional. Thankful.

Anita Gerhardter, Wings for Life CEO

Arly Velázquez
We all know at least one person who has had spinal cord injury and in this sense I think it's a responsibility to join this cause.

Arly Velázquez

Thousands of people at that very moment are sharing the experience with you. The fatigue, the joy, the emotion afterwards. Everything. It was great.

Daniel Ricciardo, Race number 1 and Formula 1 driver

I am so stoked to be a part of this the last few years and looking forward to 2016

Michael Wardian, Local winner in Melbourne, Australia in 2015 and Sunrise, Florida in 2014

What is even more significant is that Wings for Life are set up really well in all areas and that every single project offers true potential – potential for achieving the goal of finding a cure for spinal cord injury.

If it doesn't challenge you, it sure as hell won't change you.

I believe that a solution will be discovered in the future, and I’m really happy that we can count on an organization like Wings for Life to help find it.
