I am extremely thrilled to be a Wings for Life ambassador for the simple reason; this cause brings hope to millions. My goal for the past decade has been to walk again. I know that joining Wings for Life will help make my dream come true.

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.

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

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.

Sean Swarner
The human body can live for roughly 30 days without food. The human condition can survive for about 3 days without water, but no human alive can live for more than 30 seconds without hope.

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.
