Gold Coasters urged to SIP for a cure

More than 12,000 Australians are currently living with a spinal cord injury and there is an estimated 300 – 400 new cases each year.

Currently there is no known cure for a spinal cord injury and this is something the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation wants to change.

To raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for paralysis, Gold Coasters are being encouraged to take part in SIP Week from the 5th – 11th September.


Profoundly disabled quadriplegics have to drink every beverage with the aid of a straw. So SIP Week encourages everyone to join together and drink every beverage through a straw for a whole week.

Those interested in taking part are encouraged to register asap at Registered SIPPERS will be provided with an official SIP straw as well as their own fundraising web page. those people unable to SIP can choose to make a tax deductible donation here:
