The Cure Girls took part at the 3rd edition of the Wings For Life World Run on May the 8th 2016 to raise money For the Wings for Life Spinal Cord Injury Research Foundation and to make sure our message is heard loud and clear: Chronic Spinal Cord Injury Must Become Curable!
The cure girls partecipated together with the fantastic “Cure Girls Team” made of 50 friends and supporters that runned with us and for us to support research to find a cure for chronic spinal cord injury. Arcangela, Barbara, Marina, Lolly and Loredana were in Milan (Italy), Sabrina was in Brasilia (Brazil), while Rebecca pushed from the Channel Islands (UK) thanks to the App created by the organizers to allow people to partecipate also in case they could not make it to one of the cities around the world where the World Run was taking place (see our pictures here).
Wings For Life saies that together we have run 1,255,000 kilometers and raised 6,600,000 euros that will go all for research to find a cure for paralysis!
The global champion Giorgio Calcaterra (ITA) ran record-shattering 88.4km | 54.9mi to outperform 130,732 athletes around the world.
The Cure Girls are very happy to have contributed to the success of this global event that brings hope to all the people living with paralysis and fighting to make a cure happen as soon as possible!
Thanx to all of you for running, volunteering, donating, watching and cheering.
