Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day

Friday 18 May 2018

What Can You Do?

Spinal Cord Injuries Awareness Day is an annual event which raises much needed profile and funds for people affected by spinal cord injury.

We’re asking you to turn the spotlight on what it means to have a spinal cord injury. We'll be raising awareness on social media so keep an eye out for us and join in by sharing, retweeting, and telling us what you are doing for Spinal Research.

If you can put up a poster in your local community, sports venue, pub or shop then please download one here or register below and we will send you as many as you need.
You can also help us by making a donation, organising an event or taking part in one of our running/cycling or challenge events. Why not sign up to this year’s Guy Martin’s Big Brew and be in with the chance of meeting the man himself. Alternatively, take part in the SCI Tri Challenge, an inclusive event for all ages and abilities.

Whatever you do, you will be helping us change the future of spinal cord injury.

A cure for paralysis, so I could walk again one day, would be unbelievable. I want to raise awareness about what it means to have a spinal cord injury.”

Every day three people are told they will never walk again

There are over 50,000 people in the UK living with paralysis

Over 2.5 million people worldwide have a spinal cord injury
