WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN NEWS

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.

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

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.

Walking again will be the best feeling ever!

Brooke Thabit, Wings for Life World Run ambassador

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.

I think everyone should sign up for the Wings for Life World Run or download the Selfie Run app. And what makes this event truly unique is the Catcher Car. The finish line will come to you. I’m coming to get you!

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

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

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.

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

Goosebumps. Emotional. Thankful.

It's hard to find so many satisfied faces in one place anywhere else :)

Matjaz Klemencic, Slovenia

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.

Be calm. Set yourself a realistic goal and see if you can come close to that goal. And if you achieve that goal, i’m sure that you’ll come back next year and try to go beyond that.

We can't wait for the race again! It's such an awesome day!!!

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

Lemawork Ketema, Global Champion 2014 and 2015

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.
