WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN RAISES MONEY TO FIND A CURE FOR SPINAL CORD INJURY:

About the Wings for Life World Run taking place on May 5th, 2024:

The Wings For Life World Run is not just another running event—it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. What sets it apart is its unique format: participants worldwide begin their run simultaneously, whether individually using the Wings for Life World Run App or as part of organized app run events at cities nationwide, including here in Boston.

What truly makes this event exceptional is its inclusive nature. Regardless of your running experience or ability level, whether you’re a seasoned athlete, a recreational runner, or even a novice, the focus remains on enjoyment. There’s no conventional finish line; instead, after 30 minutes, a virtual Catcher Car in the app initiates a thrilling pursuit, gradually overtaking participants one by one. Your run concludes once the virtual catcher car catches up to you, with results measured not in time but in distance achieved. Even more compelling is the cause behind the run. 100% of entry fees and donations directly support spinal cord research. Since 2014, the Wings for Life World Run has seen an impressive turnout, with 1.3 million participants from 195 nationalities collectively raising over $47 million dollars for spinal cord injury research. www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com.

The Wings for Life World Run booth will be offering 5–10-minute massages for anyone who signs up for the virtual run taking place on Sunday May 5th, 2024.

Worldwide, millions of people are dependent on a wheelchair after having sustained a spinal cord injury, most often as the result of a traffic accident or a fall. Wings for Life is a not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation with the single mission to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Since 2004, Wings for Life has funded life-changing research projects and clinical trials around the globe. While a cure is still to be found, steady progress has been made. Every step taken at the Wings for Life World Run is a step in the right direction, because 100% of entry fees and donations goes to spinal cord research: www.wingsforlife.com.
