The fifth Wings for Life World Run is an ideal opportunity for everyone to become even more passionately involved in raising funds for spinal cord injury research. Making a donation is just as praiseworthy as running on behalf of those who can’t...
As an event the popularity of which is on the rise by day, Wings for Life World Run has grown into one of the most beautiful stories in the global world of sport in the past four years. This May 6, it will once again become the meeting place of more than a hundred thousand competitors, who will be running in six different continents at the same time, united by their desire to make spinal cord injuries curable.
However, running for those who can’t is not the only way you can help. Any of us can do the right thing in this battle for the cure for people with spinal cord injuries by joining it in the most active way, one that does not even require running shoes, but only good will and a big heart.
The decision to become a donor is as praiseworthy as the decision to run. 100 % of your donation payment goes to the Wings for Life Foundation, which serves one purpose only: to deploy the funds raised this way exclusively for research aimed at finding the cure for spinal cord injuries.
Making a donation could not be any simpler. Just go to the official Wings for Life World Run website and press the red donation button for a few simple steps to become one of hundreds of thousands of people that care about those who can’t join the run and have decided to show it.
Unfortunately, any of us can sustain an injury to our spinal cord, so by supporting this research you may also be helping yourself or someone close to you in the future!
For those who would like to do even more and contribute their enthusiasm and love to inspire the people around them, there is also the option of individual or group fundraising campaign, which requires an extra effort to encourage donations from your relatives, co-workers, friends, acquaintances ad all good-hearted people. You can start one today!
In the past, the research of spinal cord injuries was not adequately financed, but we have managed to change this together in the past four years. Now is the time to make one more step towards our goal. Every kuna counts and can make an impact on our future. Important research and clinical studies depend on cash donations made by people like you. Thank you for your support!
