CSRO and ASRO are partnering with StopConcussions Foundation in our Shoot For A Cure Campaign. Our mission is to raise awareness and fund research, prevention, treatment and cure for those suffering from brain and spinal cord injury (neurotrauma).
Shoot For A Cure (SFAC) partners with local neurotrauma charities and not-for-profit organizations to organize SFAC events, with a percentage of net funds raised remaining in the local community. Events include golf tournaments, hockey tournaments, curling bonspiels, walk-run-wheel-athons, and more. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our campaigns are driven by science, and lead through strong leadership to encourage awareness for everyone.
The CSRO/ASRO has raised nearly 20 million dollars for spinal cure research since 1984 in research labs across North America. The CSRO/ASRO is most proud of the development of the drug Ampyra, which has been proven to improve communication between the brain and the spinal cord. The drug was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January, 2010. Ampyra is an oral treatment to improve walking in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). With such breakthrough drug therapies, researchers are increasingly confident that a cure is imminent with continued research.
