The Canadian/American Spinal Research Organization (CSRO/ASRO) is a charitable organization (charitable registration # 11915 9515 RR0001) dedicated to the funding of targeted research to maximize functional recovery and cure paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. CSRO envisions a world without paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.
Through their many fundraising initiatives, and strategic partnerships the CSRO/ASRO has raised nearly 30 million dollars for spinal cure research since 1984. Our corporate and community partners help us fulfill our mandate of improving of the physical quality of life for persons with a spinal cord injury and those with related neurological deficits, through targeted medical and scientific research and the reduction of spinal cord injuries through our prevention and awareness programs.
One of CSRO’s on-going projects is called “Journey to a Cure”. It is a video series for consumers, advocates, doctors and researchers of spinal cord injury research designed to mobilize our community towards finding a cure for paralysis. This resource is designed to answer some of the first questions that arise after an injury and go into more detail on the most promising research towards a cure.
