Walkoncemore was set up at the end of 2006 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 came together with a view to doing all they could.
It was obvious that the race was on World-Wide to cure this hugely debiltating 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, and it is vital that funds be channelled toward the approaches with the most promise.
Walkoncemore was founded on that very fact and we will continue our diligent work until a cure becomes a reality.
With your help, there really can be a future without chronic Spinal Cord Injury!
In order to continue with our mission, we rely on the ongoing support and generosity of individuals and organisations. We raise funds in a variety of ways, including direct donations and sponsorship. Events such as our Freedom Ball and activities such as skydiving, marathons and 5-10k runs are also valuable fundraising avenues. Additionally, we can enrol supporters in a range of exciting overseas challenges, including a trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and a London to Paris cycle. Each sale of our exclusive engraved ‘Allumonde’ ring also helps to garner both funds and awareness about the cause. Details on all of the aforementioned can be found on our Give page.
Donated goods and services can also be placed into one of our charity auctions on eBay. Supporters may nominate a percentage of sale proceeds to Walkoncemore when selling items within their personal eBay accounts too.
With Walkoncemore being a member of eBay’s partner charity, Mission Fish, the process could not be simpler. Please see our Get involved page for details.
By visiting our charity profile on Just Giving supporters can choose to make a one off or recurring donation securely and easily. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any of the above or indeed more!
Walkoncemore are unique in that we are the only UK Spinal Cord Injury charity solely supporting research into a cure for chronic SCI. With each injury deemed ‘chronic’ after around the 14 day period, our mantra is that a chronic cure is a cure for all.
Grant applications submitted by Research Institutions and Scientists are reviewed by our Trustees, with a view to monies being assigned annually.

Sadly, Spinal Cord Injuries will always occur, but let’s make them mirror other injuries – let’s render them repairable, and temporary. To help Walkoncemore on our mission please click here.
