Wings For Life World Run

184,236 Participants
$6.5M Raised

Together, runners and wheelchair users worldwide set a new mark for history’s largest run and raised vital funds to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

Never before have so many people taken part in a running event: at this year’s Wings For Life World Run, 184,236 participants from 195 nations ran for those who can’t. A total of AUD$6.5m was raised for spinal cord research through entry fees and donations.

The Sydney event was held in Centennial Park, taking over the parklands after dark, giving participants exclusive use and the run of the roadways under a fully lit course.
