Moved to action
Walkoncemore was set up to help those currently living with the after-effects of SCI, as well as those yet to be injured. With a great interest in the promise of a cure for this devastating condition, a small group of trustees and volunteers came together with a view to doing all they could.
It was obvious that the race was on worldwide to cure this hugely debilitating condition. Contrary to what many injured people are initially told in spinal rehabilitation units, many researchers working to bring curative therapies to the bedside also believe in a future without permanent spinal cord injury. The goal of walking again is held by so many, and this goal is no longer just a dream, nor a coping mechanism – it can indeed be achieved. The science itself is almost ready. Walkoncemore was founded on this very fact and we will continue our diligent work until a cure becomes a reality.
As a 100% volunteer-led charity with no staffing costs or rental overheads, we are proud to be able to keep our outgoings to a bare minimum. This enables us to support chronic research in the most impactful way possible, with a view to helping hasten the reversal of the devastating consequences of SCI.
