Venue: Osmania University, HyderabadIndia’s finest off road racer CS Santosh on the Wings for Life World Run initiative, said “My friend Daniel McCoy suffered spinal cord injuries. He’s coping well and is constantly working on getting better and I see that he still goes out and does all the things that he loves which is so positive for his mental perspectives and it says a lot about the resolve he has. I think the wing for life foundation is really important because what happened to him could happen to any of us and to be able to find a cure or method to fix spinal disabilities would be a Great Leap Forward in medical science. I loved the experience of driving the catcher car at the run few years ago as I got to see and experience the whole race from the amateur runners to the pros going at it! It was also so great to see thousands of people on the main streets running together for a cause that needs all of us to pool together!
