Today 5th September is World Spinal Cord Injury Day. We are constantly striving to support research into a cure for SCI and realise our vision of “a world free from spinal cord injury paralysis”. Thank you to all our past and present supporters who have given so freely of their time, expertise and generous financial donations that enable CatWalk to fund the crucial research.
The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Research Trust was founded in 2005 by Catriona Williams MNZM, formerly one of New Zealand’s leading international equestrian riders. Following a riding accident in 2002, she is now C6/C7 tetraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. Initially, a group of friends planned to fundraise for Williams herself – but a bigger picture quickly became clear. A cure for paralysis was Williams’ dream – and so CatWalk was born. We believe in supporting researchers in the very realistic bid for a cure for spinal cord injuries.
