Whether it's your own or an Organized App Run, with the app you'll run alongside hundreds of thousands of other participants around the world. Most importantly, 100% of your entry fee goes directly towards spinal cord research.
In addition to the racing and training mode, the Wings for Life World Run App has a Donate-button. With this feature you can donate directly to the Wings for Life Foundation.
"I run with the app for those who can’t, because we cannot take it for granted that we are all healthy. A careless moment, a minor spinal cord injury, and you're in a wheelchair. Time to get the millions affected out of the wheelchairs! " - Wings for Life World Run Ambassador Christian Schiester
There is just one question to answer: Where are you going to run with the app?
