Head of fundraising // Wings for Life
Wolfgang Illek is head of fundraising at the research foundation Wings for Life. The foundation's goal is to find a cure for paraplegia. He has been paraplegic from the shoulders down since a bicycle crash in 2004. The father of two lives with his family in Lower Austria.
Wings for Life is a non-profit, state-recognised foundation for spinal cord research. The goal: to find a cure for paraplegia. To this end, Wings for Life supports promising research projects and clinical studies worldwide to heal the injured spinal cord. 100% of all donations go directly to research. This is possible because the Red Bull company bears all administrative costs of the foundation.
