Thank you all for 2018

This was the Wings for Life World Run 2018

Thank you all for this incredible day. More than 100,000 people came together across the planet at Event Runs, App Runs or running individually with the App, and the vibe was unforgettable! Now, every cent of the funds raised is helping researchers get closer to a cure for spinal cord injury. We can hardly wait for next year!
