    Red Bull-backed Wings For Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation Comes To America

    Red Bull-backed Wings For Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation Comes To America
    Sep 25, 2007

    From a press release issued by Red Bull:

    It happens every 41 minutes: somebody in the U.S. sustains a spinal cord injury. This epidemic, which affects more than 2.5 million people worldwide, including 300,000 Americans, has yet to become a focus of major medical study -- until now. Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation is a global charity dedicated to making spinal injury curable, and its U.S. debut is poised to make a major impact in the athletic community and beyond.

    The foundation's goals are four-fold: (1) funding cutting edge scientific research aiming to heal spinal cord injury; (2) improving scientific communication in this specific field of research; (3) developing concrete, clinical intervention strategies and their potential applications; and (4) preventing spinal cord injuries.
