Malaysia Join Support For the “Wings for Life World Run” towards Spinal Cord Research

Kuala Lumpur, 19 April 2018 - The world’s only race with no finish line, the ‘Wings for Life World App Run’, organised by Red Bull Product of Europe, is back in Malaysia. Taking place at numerous locations around the world, the Wings For Life World Run calls on those who can run for those who can’t, with 100 percent of the entry fee for the event donated towards efforts to find a cure for spinal cord injury. As for Malaysia, Red Bull will be organising an Organised App Run where people gather at one meeting point, Padang Varisity University Malaya at 7PM on 6 May to run together.

Participating in the Wings For Life Organised App Run is really simple. To sign up, participants must download the Wings For Life World Run app on their smartphone, locate Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and complete the sign up. On run day, runners would need to ensure that their phone is fully charged, enable location or GPS and load up the app to run.

Here’s how it works
On one day each year, the Wings for Life World Run takes place at event locations across the globe. Everybody starts at exactly the same moment. Whether it’s day or night, bright sun or pouring rain at your location, you’re running together with the world and sharing an amazing experience.

Just a newbie to running?

The Wings for Life World Run is perfect for everyone, of every ability, because you set your own goals and you don’t head toward a distant finish line. Instead, the finish line catches up with you. 30 minutes after the race starts, a moving finish line, the “Virtual Catcher Car,” chases runners, gradually getting faster until each one is caught. The first runners passed after a few kilometers are the first to celebrate their accomplishments, while the last man and woman to be caught are
declared Global Champions.

Can’t make it to an event location?
It’s still easy to join the global movement. Get the Wings for Life World Run App and run at where you are. You’ll be chased by a Virtual Catcher Car at the same time as all the other runners around the globe. And be sure to check out the Organized App Runs, where groups are meeting to run with the App together.

Every cent raised goes to cutting-edge research
When you participate in the Wings for Life World Run, you know you’re making an impact. 100% of all entry fees and all donations raised through fundraising campaigns go directly to life-changing spinal cord research projects and clinical trials at renowned universities and institutes worldwide. The nonprofit Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation is a driving force behind the mission, and Red Bull covers the foundation’s administrative costs in full as well as costs for the Wings for Life World Run.

You make the difference.

Who participates in the Wings for Life World Run?

People who care – and who like to have fun while making a difference. People like you! So if you’re the crazy costume type, go for it. But if you’re serious about your result, that’s fine, too. Either way, you’ll be running together with athletes, casual joggers and wheelchair users.

Will you help those numbers climb when the 2018 race is run on May 6 at 7PM ? Be part of a global event you’ll never forget – register now!
