The Will to Win Classic enters its sixteenth year in July 1999. This
charity golf tournament has raised over $400,000 for spinal cord research.
These funds contributed significantly to the establishment of the Winnipeg
Spinal Cord Research Centre. The prospect of a continuing source of
funds dedicated to spinal cord research made possible the recruitment of
talented young scientists, known as Will to Win Scholars. The existence
of the Centre and the presence of these dedicated doctors have been
the basis for many advances in our knowledge of the major functional
systems of the spinal cord. This new knowledge is now leading to new
strategies for restoration of lost function after injury. Today, the
Winnipeg Spinal Cord Research Centre is in a position to play a leading
role in the development of new neurosurgical techniques for treatment of
spinal cord injury. The seed money provided on an ongoing basis by the
Will to Win golfers has been and continues to be extremely important to
the evolution of the Centre. In 1999 the tournament has 108 participants
including many sponsors and supporters who contributed to this endeavour.
Gold sponsors contributed a minimum of $5000, while Silver sponsors
range from $1000 to $3500. The involvement of all participants and
others who support the Will to Win Classic is much appreciated by the
Will to Win Tournament Committee.
