The Wings For Life charity
Wings for Life is an international not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation. Their mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. They fund world-class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.1
The Wings for Life World Run is a global charity event with a unique, and uniquely fun, format.
It’s a worldwide run where everybody starts simultaneously and the finish line chases you!
On one day each year, the Wings for Life World Run takes place at event locations across the planet. Everybody starts at exactly the same moment: May 3, 2020, 11am UTC. 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.

Inspired by the Wings For Life movement, we've decided to create a Landis+Gyr Team and run for those who can't. From Alpharetta, Georgia to Sydney, Australia, Landis+Gyr colleagues from across the globe will be joining the cause and running together on May 3th.
Help make a difference
For every Landis+Gyr employee joining our team, we will make a separate donation to the Wings For Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation.
Want to participate? It's easy! Start a campaign to raise funds individually or as a team, or make a donation. Visit the official Wings for Life website to learn how to donate or get your campaign started. 100% of entry fees and donations go directly to spinal cord research.
