Every day 3 people in the UK are paralysed due to spinal cord injury

More than 50,000 people in the UK and Ireland are living with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.

Spinal cord injury is devastating to the person, and their family and friends. Spinal Research is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments.

A huge thank you to the whole team at Saracens for getting on board with our Drop KickABLE challenge and letting us come down in July to get some great footage. This was all made possible because of our fantastic ambassadors Ben Kende and Peter Robinson. Prior to Ben’s accident his rugby coach in Hong Kong was Joe Shaw who is now the Skills Coach for the Saracens first team.

He is too young to tell if he can feel areas of his body, or if he is in pain.

If I had more control of my arms I would be so much more independent. Little things like brushing my hair, putting my make-up on, writing at school.

I have forgotten what walking feels like. I wonder if I will ever know how it feels again.

Our research will help paralysed people.

Our research could change the lives of thousands of people paralysed by spinal cord injury. But we need your support to fund more research.
