But here’s the twist – instead of racing toward a traditional finish line, you’re chased by a virtual Catcher Car on the Wings for Life app. Once it catches you, your race ends, marking your contribution to the cause. Every step or roll you take contributes to spinal cord research, with 100% of entry fees going directly to the Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation. Register here.
