WINGS FOR LIFE

HELP US FIND A CURE FOR SPINAL CORD INJURY!

Ever wanted to be a part the Red Bull Racing Australia team, but didn’t quite have the driving prowess that Jamie or Craig does? Well, now’s your chance to join the team and fight for a cause that’s close to the team’s heart... spinal cord injury. Driving accidents are one of the biggest causes of spinal injury, so we’ve joined forces with Wings for Life World Run to help find a cure.

Wings for Life World Run is a global running event with a difference. On 3rd May 2015, participants in six continents and 35 locations around the world will start the race at exactly the same time, Australian runners will kick off in Melbourne at 9pm AEST, running through the night and into the early morning. More than 40,000 people around the world have already registered.

Open to runners of all abilities, ages and nationalities, it’s the only race where the finish line catches you. Your race is over once you’re overtaken by the ‘Catcher Car’ that sets off 30 minutes after the start.

Unfortunately, due to the Perth V8 Supercars round falling on the same day as the Wings for Life World Run, Jamie and Craig aren’t able to take part. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t. We’re asking our fans, friends, supporters and anyone who has wanted to be part of the Red Bull Racing Australia team to run for those who can’t – by joining our official Wings for Life World Run team. Come in colours and run as one... as one team fighting for the greater cause. As one team who wants to make a difference.

In thanks for your support and coming together as one family, everyone who registers for the Wings for Life World Run and signs up for the Red Bull Racing Australia team, will have their name printed on the rear wing of the car for the Perth round of the V8 Supercars Championship. We know you have our backs, so we want you to know we have yours!

‘We all want to find a cure for spinal cord injury. By taking part in the Wings for Life World Run, it’s an opportunity to raise aware- ness and help raise funds for more research. We can’t make it this year as we’ll be racing in Perth, so we need you to join in – run for Red Bull Racing Australia, run for those who can’t, and run to make a difference.’ – Craig Lowndes

It’s not about running 40km at Olympic pace, it’s about running for those who can’t. It doesn’t matter if you run 1km, 5km, 10km or 50km, each and every runner is another step closer to finding a cure for spinal cord injury. It’s a strength in numbers game and by taking part under the Red Bull Racing Australia banner, we can fight the cause together. 100% of the entry fees go towards research.

Signing up is easy with a few clicks of the mouse. Just jump onto to www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com hit the SIGN UP button on the top right and then follow the links to join the Red Bull Racing Australia team. Simple!
