Published October 1st, 2010

What is Wings for Life? To put it simply – The way is in sight and the goal is clearly defined: A life without wheelchair. Wings for Life has dedicated itself to this future.

Amanda talked briefly with Heinz Kinigardner, the main principal behind Wings for Life. Wings for Life is a foundation dedicated to finding results to spinal cord injuries, and ultimately, a cure. And then, she talked briefly to Pit Beirer, KTM’s Off-Road Sports Manager about KTM’s upcoming plans.

More info about Wings for Life:
