    Event History

    The Racing to Recovery Gala is one of the premier spinal cord injury fundraising events both locally and across the nation. The Gala raises funds for spinal cord research to develop treatments to provide significant improvements in the quality of life for patients and to ultimately achieve a cure by 2025.

    Public Recognition

    Your participation in the Racing to Recovery Gala includes public recognition through our event collateral and media partner promotion.

    Why

    According to a study initiated by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, there are nearly 1 in 50 peopleapproximately 6 million peopleliving with some form of paralysis in the United States. Of that number, roughly 1,275,000 people are spinal cord injured. Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when there is any damage to the spinal cord that blocks communication between the brain and the body resulting from trauma (e.g., a car crash) or from disease or degeneration (e.g., cancer). After SCI, a persons sensory, motor, and reflex messages are affected and may not be able to travel beyond the damage in the spinal cord.

    Although many important developments in spinal cord research and treatment are underway, the fact is that tangible progress is slow in coming. It is imperative that we accelerate progress now to improve the lives and futures of these individuals. CPN is committed to providing significant improvements in the quality of life for patients and to ultimately achieve a cure.

    About Conquer Paralysis Now

    History

    In 2000, Sam Schmidt, an Indy Racing League team owner and former racecar driver, became a quadriplegic after sustaining a C-3/4/5 spinal cord injury in a test-driving accident in Orlando. That same year, he founded the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation (SSPF) to fund medical research and support programs that provide resources to spinal cord injured people. Fourteen years after his accident, Sam Schmidt has built a racing empire from his wheelchair and SSPF raised more than $8 million for spinal cord research. In 2014, SSPF changed its name to Conquer Paralysis Now (CPN) to better reflect its mission to cure paralysis. Sams dream is to walk his daughter down the aisle when she gets married, and see others like himself achieve their dreams. Fueled by this passion, Sam has devoted his life and energy to finding a cure for paralysis and spinal cord injury.

    Mission

    CPN, its Board, and a team of over 40 researchers believe that a cure for spinal cord injury is possible within the next decade, and are determined to reach that ambitious goal. Conquer Paralysis Now funds scientific research, medical treatment, rehabilitation, and technological advances that lead us toward a curewhether through positive advances or failures that help guide the next effort.

    Research

    On the foundation of the research SSPF and others have funded for the last 10 years, CPN is now focused on a novel and bold initiative, the CPN Challenge Program, designed to fuel major breakthroughs in the field of SCI research through the use of grants and prize competitions. The CPN Challenge Program redefines the way we think about research funding and creates a new model for scientific advancement and discoveryone that encourages cooperation among fields; recognizes failure as part of progress; and rewards results rather than good intentions. CPN believes the funding structure and collaborative nature of the CPN Challenge Program will speed the pace of progress in order to achieve a cure for paralysis within the next decade.

    The CPN Challenge Program

    The CPN Challenge Program will award up to $19,320,000 in total grants, awards, and prizes over a ten-year period. The final $10 million prize will be awarded to the first team that realizes unprecedented improvement in functionality of people living with SCI.

    Prizes This results-oriented initiative will be executed in three distinct stages, representing increased complexity of development and knowledge transfer among researchers at each level. As the Challenge unfolds, the prize money will increase according to the complexity and maturity of the proposal ideas. Stage I has been launched with the ambition of providing seed funding to a wide range of non-traditional approaches. Applications are now open. Two of each grant are available in six categories: New Investigator, Collaboration, Crossover, Translation, Out-of-the-Box, and Reaching and Grasping. Stage I grants will recur annually for the first six years of the Challenge program. Following this, Stage II will set significant milestone prizes for translating basic science into animal and human application. Together, these stages will guide the community toward the final $10 million prize in Stage III.

    Recognizing that failure is an integral part of success, the CPN Challenge Program will also award 120 Trial and Error prizes to those researchers who publish their negative results. This incentive is designed to save time, money, and effort by minimizing duplication of experiments. In addition to financial awards, winners

    Goals The goal of the Conquer Paralysis Now Challenge Program is to accelerate the development of treatments for spinal cord injury in order to provide significant improvements in patients quality of life. The program aim to:

    1) attract submissions from various disciplinesscience, business, and technology; 2) foster collaboration; and 3) drive large-scale competition to find a cure for paralysis and SCI.

    The Campaign for Conquer Paralysis Now

    To achieve the ambitious goals set forth in the CPN Challenge Program, Conquer Paralysis Now is poised to launch a major campaign to raise $35 million to build capacity, support infrastructure, and fund awards, prizes, and grants over the next ten years. In addition, the Foundation plans to raise $5 million for an endowment fund to ensure the sustainability of the Foundation. Funding will be provided through an innovative model that will attract both the philanthropic community as well as private sector initiatives.
