This event is being held to raise awareness and vital funds for the services that Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) provide in Queensland.
There are approximately 15,000 people in Australia with a spinal cord Injury. The cost to families both financially and emotionally is enormous. Currently there is no cure for spinal cord injury and with the highest incidence being young men in their 20s, the impact on a family is devastating. The economic impact of a spinal cord injury is $9.5 million per person over their lifetime.
SCIA is a not-for-profit organisation providing information, advocacy, exercise therapy and resources for people with a spinal cord injury, at every stage of their life journey.
