August 12th 2015 saw the launch of an exciting new Cure Girls’ initiative. It’s called #WalkingWednesday.
It’s an international campaign and the goal is to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for paralysis caused by chronic spinal cord injury.
To participate in this campaign is very very, easy. Every Wednesday, simply use social media to post a photo of yourself before your spinal cord injury (SCI). Then we’ll share your picture on the #walkingwednesday FB page and in order to make it visible to everybody we ask you to set the privacy setting of the picture on “public”. Ask all your SCI contacts to do the same!
In order to give meaning to this campaign, we’re asking participants to include in their #WalkingWednesday post information about organisations that are working hard to get us out of wheelchairs.
Here are some suggestions of organisations that doing great work; please remember to add to your post!
