SPINAL CORD INJURY AWARENESS DAY – FRIDAY 13th MAY…

SPINAL CORD INJURY AWARENESS DAY – Friday 13th May – Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day, encouraging businesses to show their support by taking on a Wheels at Work™ fundraiser! #SCIDay #SCI22

On Friday 13 May the Spinal Cord Injury Association will be marking Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day 2022 (SCIAD) They lead this annual event to raise awareness of spinal cord injury and highlight the challenges spinal cord injured (SCI) people face on a daily basis.

This year’s theme is all about  the everyday challenges faced by SCI people.  We know that SCI is devastating for every person and in a split second, you can lose your independence, your freedom and sometimes even your reason for staying alive.

With the challenges SCI people face hitting an all-time high throughout the past two years, we know even the most basic freedoms have been taken away from our members; leaving the house, having dinner with friends, and even getting carers in to support them with their everyday life.

For SCI people, these challenges are a part of everyday life, even outside the confines of the pandemic and as life is getting slowly back to normal, for SCI people, this happens even slower.

Life doesn’t suddenly go back to normal for SCI people with barriers to accessibility, lack of access to care and general stigma around being disabled having a profound impact on quality of life.

Alongside charity partners, we will be doing everything we can to support our members and help them overcome the daily challenges disabled people face in our society.

But we also want to celebrate those small wins, the mountains that spinal cord injured people and our community overcome every single day.

So we are asking our members and the spinal cord injured community ‘what is your everyday mountain?’

To get involved, tweet us and tell us your everyday mountain using the hashtag #EverydayMountains #SCIAD22 and tag SIA at @spinalinjuries (Twitter), @spinal_injuries (Instagram) and Spinal Injuries Association (Facebook).
