At MCG we are all too aware of the impact of a spinal injury on people’s lives and those of everyone around them. MCG Partner Sivan Gelb’s sister suffered a spinal injury at only five years old. Sivan’s entire family was involved in the practicalities of caring for her. She is the reason that Sivan and his colleagues at MCG are committed to supporting research into a cure for paralysis relating to spinal injury.
In the UK there are over 50,000 people paralysed by a spinal cord injury and every day three people are told that they will never walk again. MCG is dedicated to supporting Spinal Research in its search for a cure so that no one has to hear a life changing diagnosis again.
Sivan raised over £16,000 for Spinal Research in 2018 during his ’10 for 10′ challenge which involved completing ten demanding tasks in 2018. Our aim is to continue to raise as much money as possible for this admirable charity in 2019 and beyond.
In 2019 MCG are the major sponsors of the Tackling Paralysis campaign headed by ex-international rugby player Jason Leonard OBE. We are raising funds at rugby matches, running a drop-kick challenge and we aim to raise as much money as possible before the end of the year. For more information click here:
