Almost every single day in Australia, someone has their life changed forever by a spinal cord injury. SIP Week encourages everyone to drink all beverages through a straw, just like those with a spinal injury, to help raise funds to find the cure for paralysis.
You have the power to change a life today. You don’t have to run a marathon, or even break a sweat, just drink all your beverages through a straw and fundraise from September 16th to September 22nd 2019!
In 2002 SIP Week was born, Perry had the idea to start SIP Week as he, along with many others with paralysis, drinks all his beverages through straw. As a C2 ventilated quadriplegic with no movement below his neck, Perry relies on carers to assist him with all his day to day tasks. Perry wanted able bodied Australians to get a very small insight into living with paralysis and the while raising vital funds for spinal injury research to help find the cure for paralysis for all.
