Swen's fundraising

Swen says it's important to him focus on overcoming the devastating effects of his injuries. This includes raising as much money as he can for Spinal Research.

Being a persuasive talker, he has roped family and friends in to all sorts of activities. He has also reached out to his motorbiking friends who have generously donated time and money for our research. This includes Ryan Stafford of RS Racing who has organised a great motorbiking themed raffle, and sports the Spinal Research name on his racing gear.

Raising awareness of spinal cord injury is crucial if we are to see research develop effective treatments.
