The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Research Trust was founded in 2005 by Catriona Williams, formerly one of New Zealand’s leading international equestrian riders.
Following a riding accident in 2002, Catriona became C6/C7 tetraplegic and is now confined to a wheelchair.
The CatWalk Trust is committed to a world where spinal cord injuries do not mean paralysis for life. They are absolutely determined to help find a cure to enable spinal cord injury sufferers to walk again and to get people like Catriona and Nicko out of wheelchairs and back on their feet.
Quite frankly, we think what they do is absolutely outstanding and fits perfectly within the morals and beliefs of the Brothers Keep on Walking brand.
CatWalk Trust focuses their energy and the profits they raise towards:
+ Supporting the scientific opinion that a cure for spinal cord injuries can be found.
+ Promoting and generating funding for research into a cure for Spinal cord injuries.
+ Identifying and assisting in medical research and development into techniques designed for the regeneration of the effects of spinal cord injuries.
+ Monitoring the research progress of all scientists funded by the CatWalk Trust.
+ Encouraging cooperation between all disciplines engaged in central nervous system research, regeneration and direct relief.
+ Cooperating with international efforts in this field.
