Wings for Life are Red Bull and Red Bull Racing’s o cial charity partner and in 2017 the Grand Prix Ball will be held in support of Wings for Life UK. Our aim is to raise a large sum of money through our silent and live auctions that will take place throughout the evening to help improve the lives of millions of people that are living with a spinal cord injury across the world. Wings for Life UK fund world class scienti c research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at nding a cure for spinal cord injury. Most people live through months if not years of rehabilitative therapy and often lose the ability to move limbs and the use of other bodily functions for the rest of their lives.
There is currently no medical treatment available but scientists agree: injured neurons can regenerate. Spinal cord injury will be curable one day. To date, Wings for Life have funded 124 spinal cord research projects worldwide at well-respected institutes. When supporting Wings for Life, 100% of the money donated will go directly to spinal cord injury research as their overheads are covered by their founders. Together we will nd a cure.
