Have your own place? 
If you are lucky enough to secure a ballot place we'd love you to join #TeamSpinal. You will receive all the perks of being part of the team and all we ask is that you raise as much as you can. All sponsorship will help us develop treatments to restore feeling and mobility for people paralysed as a result of a spinal cord injury. Email the Events Team today!
