All money raised will be donated to the Reeve Irvine Reeve Irvine Research Center and Research For Cure. The center is named after Christopher Reeve and his family and their goal is to cure paralysis after a spinal cord injury. The money raised via the 5K will go directly to Spinal Cord Injury Research and human trials. The research has shown dramatic improvements in animal studies thus far. The hope and goal is to fund the ongoing trials on humans. The reason I am organizing the event is because I had an injury that has left me a Quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down.
