Join the Wings for Life World Run, May 5, 2019

On May 5, 2019, thousands of people around the world will take part in the sixth annual Wings for Life World Run, a charity event that raises money to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Every year, it’s a joyous scene, and this time the event’s simultaneous global kick-off at 11am UTC will be even more special: In a first-of-its-kind moment, David Mzee, who was paralyzed in a 2010 gymnastics accident, will stand up and walk the initial meters across the start line on his own, thanks to a recent research breakthrough. 100 percent of all entry fees and donations for the Wings for Life World Run will go to the not-for-profit foundation Wings for Life, which supports David Mzee’s clinical trial and other cutting-edge studies. There is still time to register for the event and participate anywhere in the world.
How to help David Mzee, and others, take the next steps
Those who join David Mzee by crossing the Wings for Life World Run start line on May 5, 2019 – whether at one of the event locations, joining an Organized App Run or running individually with the Wings for Life World Run App – will be part of a historic occasion. In addition, their generosity will help to improve lives as vital spinal cord research continues.
