Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner has been appointed as an Ambassador for The Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation.
Joining motorsport legends Mark Webber, David Coulthard and Susie Wolff, as well as public figures such as adventure athlete Mark Pollock, former British Paralympian Sean Rose, and trials bike legend Martyn Ashton, Christian will assist Wings for Life by helping its fundraising efforts and boosting awareness of spinal cord injury as well as the foundation’s crucial research into finding a cure.
Acknowledging his new role as a Wings for Life Ambassador, Christian Horner said: “For more than a decade, Wings for Life has been a pioneer in the quest to reduce the impact of spinal injuries. The work going into finding a cure is complex, research-led and defined by small gains, yet each of those successes may ultimately build towards game-changing solutions. Wings for Life will not give up until a cure is found. That is why I am proud to become an Ambassador for this pioneering charity and will do all I can to raise awareness and funding, and help them reach their goal.”
The Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal added: “As a former racing driver, and now as Team Principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, I know only too well the risks associated with motorsport. Whilst racing at the top level has never been safer, life-changing injuries still occur across the motorsport spectrum. Spinal cord injury affects people of all ages and from all backgrounds and the consequences are far-reaching – for those injured and for those close to them.”
