Fundraising for spinal cord injury research: Marion’s “Unfreeze” challenge: walk the “Handelse Processie” and raise funds for cure research. … My father and I were 2 hands in one. The weird thing is that I was always afraid of losing him. We did so much together. One of the things we did was our annual trek from Valkenswaard to Handel (the Handel procession). As crazy as it was, I told him I was afraid that one day I would have to make the trip alone without him. My dear father died of a spinal cord injury in November after a fall. Since his birthday would be on April 12, I want to do this especially for him and raise money for the endParalysis foundation. This foundation is dedicated to spinal cord injury research.

What happened to my dad? He went to change a light bulb at the log cabin of his beloved scout group. Unfortunately, one second of stepping from scaffolding to ladder ended up being fatal to him.
One second…. This still brings tears to my eyes.
The hope that it would only be a bruise (although the doctors immediately said otherwise), faded very quickly. Finally, my dear dad died on November 16, of a spinal cord injury. It only takes a second. The idea in my head that has been haunting all this time is… that one second!

Would you like to join us in cheering along the side? I would love to! The trip will take place on June 19 and 20. I’m going with a friend on foot from Valkenswaard to Handel and back the next day. Departure from Valkenswaard on June 19, six in the morning and arrival in Handel around 15.45 hours.
