    Wings for Life World Run

Our mission

Spinal Cord Injury must become curable

Wings for Life is a not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation. Our mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. We fund world-class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.  

Support us in achieving our goal.

100% guarantee

1€ donation = 1€ for spinal cord research

Progress in spinal cord research is largely driven by private funding. Wings for Life is dependent on donations from individuals and companies. 100% of all donations are used for research purposes because all administrative costs are kindly covered by the Red Bull Company.
