About the charity

CORE

CORE stands for the Centre for Osteopathic Research and Excellence and was set up with the dual aim of making osteopathy accessible to all whilst researching drug-free treatments for chronic pain.

Story

The need

Around one in five of those leaving the military each year do so wounded, injured or sick and may need support. The challenges they face are changing, and the pressure on our services is increasing.

Our challenge

A team of 24 riders from Goldman Sachs' Technology division in London, led by the Goldman Sachs Veterans Network, are racing, relay-style, on Watt bikes over a total of 12 hours. Competing for greatest aggregate distance cycled, your team's amazing physical and fundraising efforts will help support veterans in chronic pain and give our wounded Heroes and their families a second chance at life.

Match funding

Did you know that every donation of $50 or more will be doubled by Goldman Sachs? That's just £45 from you that could become £90 to support Veterans and their families with physical and psychological needs. [Search for the charity using 'osteo' and select Centre for osteopathic research and excellence (ID 33090)]

Your donation...

Your £45 could pay for an instructor-led rehabilitation session on a dry ski slope, helping a Wounded Veteran to rebuild confidence. The matched £45 could fund one session of Osteopathy, enabling a Veteran to manage their pain and prevent further injury.

...could change lives

£100 could pay for accommodation for a family member to visit a wounded loved one in hospital. £300 could fund life-changing mentoring support for Veterans starting up their own business. £1000 could fund research into pain management for Veterans in chronic pain, helping future generations of wounded Veterans live pain-free lives.

Our target

The last Spinathon raised £50,000 and this year we are aiming to beat that total.

Your support

The support of the people like you has enabled Help for Heroes to help more than 22,200 men and women. Plus, your support has helped CORE (The Centre for Osteopathic Research and Excellence) to offer affordable Osteopathy to over 1000 people living with chronic pain since launching in 2017.

Every pound raised will be split equally amongst the two charities with 100% of funds going to help Veterans.

Thank you

Please pledge what you can to support our Spinathon appeal and help make a real difference to the lives of Veterans and their families.
