There are over 500,000 people living with spinal cord injury in North America.

Every year many will die from complications related to spinal cord injury.

You can help by funding the research that can restore function, and save lives.

What are the canadian/american spinal research organizations?

For over 30 years the CSRO/ASRO has worked tirelessly to raise funds for spinal cord injury research.  To date, we have raised over 30 million dollars.

Cure Advocacy for Spinal Cord Injuries

We envision a world without spinal cord injuries, and we know that research is our greatest hope.

Education, Advocacy, and Resources

By educating the community about upcoming opportunities for advocacy, the latest in research, and how we can make a difference in research for SCI we are making change happen.


Our events fuel our efforts to influence the direction of spinal cord injury research in the years to come, by attending or supporting through a donation, you too can help us make a difference and save lives.


The CSRO is dedicated to the funding of targeted research to maximize functional recovery and cure paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.  We envision a world without paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.

Through our many fundraising initiatives, and strategic partnerships the CSRO/ASRO has raised nearly 30 million dollars for spinal cure research since 1984.  Our corporate and community partners help us to fulfill our mandate of improving of the physical quality of life for persons with a spinal cord injury and those with related neurological deficits, through targeted medical and scientific research and the reduction of spinal cord injuries through our prevention and awareness programs.



In the US, we are a partner member of the Cure Advocacy Network (CAN), through our sponsorship of the U2FP organization.  The Cure Advocacy Network is a national strategy to create a movement of SCI community activists, with the goal of securing funding throughout the United States to further the cure research currently underway for spinal cord injuries.

We believe it is necessary to unite the spinal cord injured community and its stakeholders with the research community in order to make our voices heard, and ensure the priorities for cure research are in line with what the community identifies as crucial.

There has been progress, on many levels, but we need your help.  Join our community today to stay informed about the latest Cure Advocacy Network news, and how you can lend your voice to the many currently advocating for cure research for spinal cord injuries.
