Back Up exists to transform the lives of everyone affected by spinal cord injury.
That means delivering a range of services to build confidence and independence back into peoples lives, and offering a support network when it is needed most. It also means challenging perceptions of disability that life with spinal cord injury can be a full and active one. Many of our volunteer and staff team have been affected by spinal cord injury, and have a strong understanding of the challenges an injury can pose. We support over 1,000 people a year to lead the life they want. We are there at every stage, and we are there for families and loved ones too.

This truly is a spectacular event, attracting thousands of participants and spectators from all over the world. Its certainly one not to be missed.
