We believe that the cure for spinal cord injuries simply requires enough of the right people having the will to make it happen. It is our mission to find and connect those people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis. Here’s how:

CONNECTING SCIENTISTS, TECHNOLOGISTS AND PHYSIOLOGISTS TO MAKE THE CURE A REALITY


Paralysis is a human crisis requiring collaboration across geographical, organisational and intellectual boundaries. This is why Mark Pollock Trust, headed by Piers White, is focused on the power of collaboration to put hope for recovery on the agenda. Mark is acting as a catalyst for collaboration between scientists, technologists, physiologists and funding foundations as he pursues his daily training and testing regimes. We hope that this will help the global community of people with spinal cord injuries that, like Mark, currently have no hope of recovery.

SPEAKING: ENCOURAGING A HEALTHY DISREGARD
FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE


In our pursuit of wildly ambitious goals, the potential for failure travels with us. By being brave, different and ambitious we have a chance of succeeding. So Mark encourages a healthy disregard for the impossible. He does this by sharing his experiences with corporate audiences worldwide as a motivational speaker; through his colleagues in the World Economic Forum's Young Global Leaders; as a Board Member of The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation; and as an ambassador for Wings for Life Spinal Research Foundation.

CREATING A GLOBAL COMMUNITY TO
RUN AND THINK


AS DARKNESS falls on a night in mid-November every year, as people settle down in front of their televisions, thousands of others pull on their running shoes and head for the door. As they run through their cities they are helping us fast-track a cure; a global community running and thinking about the impact paralysis has on people's lives.
