The Will to Win Classic enters its twenty eighth year in July, 2011. This charity golf tournament has raised over $1,500,000.00 for spinal cord research. These funds contributed significantly to the establishment of the Winnipeg Spinal Cord Research Centre 25 years ago. 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 knowledge is now leading to new strategies for restoration of lost function after injury. Today, the Spinal Cord Research Centre (SCRC) is in a position to play a leading role in the development of new neurosurgical techniques for treatment of spinal cord injury.

In 2009 we began a new five year commitment to raise $700,000 to fund our creation of a “gifted professorship” in the Department of Physiology in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. The successful candidate, recruited through a worldwide search, will work with the existing scientists at the SCRC. The selection process is underway and the selected scientist should join the SCRC team this summer.

The funds donated on an ongoing basis by the Will to Win participants have been, and continue to be extremely important to the evolution of the SCRC. As we enter the third year of our latest endeavour, through the support of our numerous sponsors, we are on target to achieve our goal. Please review our 2011 sponsor list. The involvement of all participants and others who support the Will to Win Classic is much appreciated by the Will to Win Tournament Committee.
