Sigi Grabner runs for those who can’t
On 4th May 2014 snowboard icon Sigi Grabner exchanges his SG Snowboard against running shoes. He starts at 12 o’clock at the charity event Wings for Life World Run in Barcelona.
“In the last years I suffered a few lengthy injuries. Fortunately, everything is healed well now and I can start running after a 4-year break. Running is a sport that I’ve done since my childhood. I enjoy running much more than I did before. Now I have an idea what it means if you are not able to run,” told Sigi.
The Wings for Life World Run is an entirely new type of event never seen before or undertaken in either running or any other sporting field. It is a global adventure, encompassing up to forty locations, in which everyone runs at the very same time all over the world! 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the Wings for Life foundation, which funds research into curing spinal cord injury. “With my participation at the Wings for Life World Run I would like to support the research for the cure of spinal cord injuries. I run for those who can’t!”
The run will unite athletes around the world, in one race running for those who can’t!
