WINGS FOR LIFE OPENS UNPRECEDENTED CHARITY AUCTION OF RARE SPORTS MEMORABILIA ON EBAY TOMORROW

Currently (2007), more than 2.7 million people worldwide have a spinal injury. The Wings for Life private foundation is looking for a cure…

On Thursday 13 March 2008, Wings for Life will open an auction of 55 amazing sports and lifestyle memorabilia and experiences, on eBay, to raise funds for the privately funded, non-profit, Spinal Cord Research Foundation.

The auction will start on 13th March 2008 and will run for 17 days until 30th March 2008. Every single Euro that is raised will be used for research into finding a cure for spinal injury.

The once-in-a-lifetime auction will feature an astonishing list of sports memorabilia and experiences, including a replica of David Coulthard’s original ‘Faces for Charity’ Red Bull Racing Formula One car from the 2007 Grand Prix season (covered in the faces of British Formula One fans who donated to Wings for Life, for their spot on the car).

Wings for Life will also auction off Cyril Despres’ KTM bike from his second victory at the Dakar in 2007, a Red Bull Air Race Package with Mike Mangold, Robbie Naish’s kite surf equipment, WRC driver Carlos Sainz’s race suit, Michael Schumacher’s helmet, snowboarder Shaun White’s X –Games helmet, memorabilia from World Moto GP champions Nicky Hayden and Dani Pedrosa, a NASCAR driving experience with the Red Bull Racing team, as well as other items from skiing, B.A.S.E. jumping, skating and surfing legends. All of these items are original, signed and starting at just 1 Euro each!

Red Bull Racing Formula One team driver David Coulthard, said “Spinal cord injury is something that’s applicable not only to sports people, but to so many people in everyday life who have to sit in a wheelchair. A spinal injury completely changes the life they have and anything they can benefit from in that area is good. I hope the ‘Faces for Charity’ car will go for over 100,000 Euros. At the end of the day, it is a Formula One car.”
