Wow, wow, wow! We are over the moon and would like to send a big thank you to all 161,891 participants worldwide. Together we raised 4.7 million for spinal cord research!

All at the same time. Whether as power walkers or runners – we celebrated life together and achieved something so beautiful: we can continue to give hope to so many affected people around the world.

“Whenever a lot of people join forces, great things happen,” says our CEO Anita Gerhardter. “I’m deeply grateful that so many people went out running for our cause today. Over the past years, we’ve already made big steps towards finding a cure for spinal cord injury. And thanks to today’s participants, we can continue to fund brilliant scientists on their journey.”

We received hundreds of photos and videos from our participants, here are our highlights from the Wings for Life World Run 2022:



To all World Runners & supporters: 100% of all entry fees and donations go to spinal cord research and help find a cure. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for your support!
