Saarbrücken, Germany - eventbaxx, official partner of RunSignUp and leader in digital race bags, and Wings for Life World Run, world’s largest charity event for spinal cord injuries, extended their partnership through 2018 after a successful cooperation in 2017.
The running competition Wings for Life World Run is held annually to collect funds to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. Following the guideline "Run for those who can’t“ all proceeds from the over 100,000 participants in the race go directly to spinal cord research.
Last year, eventbaxx realized a digital questionnaire for the event to survey the participants and get a detailled overview on the satisfaction of each attendee. In that way the questionnaire could easily be distributed to all participants and be evaluated in real time. Participants experienced the questions in an appealing way and had the possibility to win a prize while the Wings for Life World Run profited from important insights to steadily improve the running series.
This year, the Wings for Life World Run took place on May 6 for the fifth time since its foundation in 2014. Additionally to the implementation of the questionnaire the digital starter pack eventbaxx was used in form of an in-app integration to offer partners and participants a new platform. While sponsors are able to present their offers in a digital way within the Wings for Life World Run App, runners can profit from the exclusive offers, discounts and raffles that await them.
Marc Grewenig, co-founder of eventbaxx said, "We are proud to expand our partnership with an internationally-renowned race like the Wings for Life World Run. Not just the innovative approach but especially the charitable aspect convinced us of the event. We are looking forward to supporting it in expanding benefits to sponsors and participants before, during and after the event with our solution!"

About Wings for Life World Run:
On one day each year the Wings for Life World Run is held simultaneously in numerous locations and via the App across the world, everyone starting at the same time, whether day or night, and all with the same goal – to raise money for the Wings for Life Foundation. Under its unique format, participants run as far as they can until they are passed by a moving finish line, the “Catcher Car,” which chases runners along the course or virtual in the App, gradually getting faster until each participant has been caught. This moving finish line allows participants of any ability to complete the run – the slower ones are passed early while ultra athletes go on for hours. 100% of entry fees and donations goes toward helping to find a cure for spinal cord injury; and in the four editions since it was launched in 2014, the World Run has attracted more than 435,000 people from 193 nationalities to participate more than 58 countries across all seven continents. Altogether they have raised €20.6 million euros while covering more than 4.2 million kilometres. Learn more at https://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/de/en
