Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation

The Wings for Life Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit that is dedicated to finding a cure for spinal cord injury (SCI). This organization is generously supported by Red Bull who underwrites all of the charity's expenses so that 100% of your donations go directly to support cutting-edge medical research projects. Millions of people are currently dependent on a wheelchair after having sustained a spinal cord injury. Every year, at least 250,000 people sustain a spinal cord injury, followed by paralysis. The main causes are: 50% traffic accidents, 25% falls, 16% other (e.g. assault), 9% sports. To date, Wings for Life has funded 170 spinal cord research projects involving almost 500 scientists across 15 countries. We believe it’s not a matter of if we’ll find a cure, but when. Join us in our efforts to making that happen for the millions of people affected by a spinal cord injury.
