The CSRO is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis through targeted medical and scientific research. The CSRO is also devoted to the improvement of the physical quality of life for persons with a spinal cord injury and those with related neurological deficits.
Through fundraising initiatives and strategic partners the CSRO has raised nearly $30 million for spinal cure research since 1984. Our campaigns and events are run to raise awareness, advocacy, and fundraise for spinal cord injury research. A recent campaign, Paving the Way for a Cure, was launched to bring together stakeholders involved in road safety to help raise awareness and fund for curative therapies for people living with spinal cord injuries due to motor vehicle accidents. Partnered with the Insurance Bureau of Canada, this campaign helps to fulfill our mandate of improving the physical quality of life for persons with spinal cord injury and those with related neurological deficits.
