At TP Vision we believe in contributing to society through our technology and products, and have been working together with partner organizations for many years in the field of health and well-being. According to the World Health Organization every year, around the world, between 250,000 and 500,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury. The majority of these injuries are mostly caused by road traffic crashes or household accidents. In other words, this can happen to anyone, with physical consequences ranging from extreme back pain to partial paralysis. Finding a cure for this is dependent on scientific research funding. With a shared goal to finding a cure for spinal cord injuries and encouraging a healthier life for people of all ages, TP Vision is proud to engage as an official partner of the global fundraising running event Wings for Life World Run.
During the World Run event held on May 8 2022, thousands of people around the world run a distance – at their own pace and however long a distance they wish – at the exact same time. Participation fees and donations go to scientific research to finding a cure to spinal cord injuries. As part of the partnership, TP Vision provides an admission ticket to the running event with every purchase of a Philips GO Series headphones. This way TP Vision, Philips Sound consumers and participating TP Vision employees altogether support spinal cord injury research to help change the lives of many people around the globe.
