The Canadian Spinal Research Organization (CSRO) wants to thank Uni-Select for their continued generosity. On July 17th, Uni-Select held their 16th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and raised $15,000 to support CSRO’s ‘Paving the Way for a Cure’ campaign. Uni-Select has now donated $280,000 to spinal cord injury research and we could not be more thankful for their efforts to help us with our cause.
There is much more to be appreciative about CSRO’s relationship with Uni-Select, beyond their donation. Every year staff members on the organizing committee of the tournament exceed expectations and we would like to give a special thank you to Lorie Caines, Kam Sukhram, Bill Hayes and the rest of the organizers and volunteers who do such a great job at putting on the event.
The CSRO created the ‘Paving the Way for a Cure’ campaign to acknowledge the high incidence of spinal cord injuries that caused by motor vehicle collisions (43%). The CSRO is uniting the aid and the interests of the Road Building, Auto Parts Manufacturers, Personal Injury Law, and Auto Insurance industries to raise $1,000,000 to fund a Canadian Epidural Stimulation study. The potential outcome of an Epidural Stimulation study could be a cure for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. There is a tremendous toll that people living with spinal cord injury endure. It is time to find a cure; however, the CSRO cannot do it alone, it is through the support of our partner organizations such as Uni-Select that we will be able to continue to fund research to find a cure for paralysis.
