100% of registrations fees and any money raised from the Wings for Life Event funds Spinal Cord research and finding a cure.
Currently at Monash, there is research being conducted on ZebraFish to attempt to find a cure for Spinal Cord Research. This research project is funded by Wings for Life. How awesome!
Other projects that Wings for Life fund:
- Brain-controlled spinal cord stimulation to alleviate gait deficits in people with paraplegia (Tomislav Milekovic, University of Geneva, Department of Fundamental Neuroscience, Geneva, Switzerland)
- Antibodies against Nogo-A to enhance regeneration and functional recovery after acute spinal cord injury- a multicenter European clinical proof of concept trial (Norbert Weidner, Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany)
It is great to know that your regristation fee goes into research that may possibly help people with spinal cord injuries.
