Working 2 Walk - 2018

October 19-20 | Vancouver, Canada

Our 13th Annual Science & Advocacy Symposium was a Success

We can't say it enough - Thank You! We're incredibly grateful to everyone who came out to make this year's Symposium one of our best yet. Special thanks to:

  • Our Sponsors. And especially our Title Sponsor, The Rick Hansen Institute - for helping to underwrite this year's Symposium and providing much needed resources to make Working 2 Walk accessible and affordable to the SCI Community.

  • Our Presenters. Each of our scientific and advocacy speakers brought a unique perspective to the table, which in turn fueled our table discussions and broadened our ideas of what is possible when the Stakeholders convene with the SCI Community.

  • Our Volunteers. Thank you to our volunteers for helping to make this year's symposium a success. We could not have pulled off this year's ambitious agenda without you.

  • Our Community. Every person who registered and represented the SCI Community - either as a Person with Lived Experience of SCI (PLEX) or a Family member with Lived Experience of SCI (FLEX) - brought a critical perspective to the table.

    Special thanks to the Rick Hansen Institute, this year's Title Sponsor! This was the first time Working 2 Walk was held outside the United States, and it proved to signal the next chapter in our ever-expanding mission to unite the SCI Community across North America & around the world.

Thanks to the Rick Hansen Institute and all of our other great sponsors for making this year's Symposium one of our best ever!
