Through an open and honest delivery of their story and experiences with spinal cord injury, our speakers hope to promote prevention, minimise risk of injury and encourage students to consider consequences of high risk activities.
With many of our speakers having acquired their injury during their teenage years, we’re confident that their stories will resonate strongly with students. Our speakers have the following in common:
- a spinal cord injury and use a wheelchair
- their injuries were a direct result of an accident
- they had their accident when they were in the high-risk age group (15-24 years old)
- they all believed an accident would never happen to them
