A spinal cord injury is damage to the nerves in the spinal column and can happen to ANYONE. It leads to (partial or complete) paralysis of the body. Worldwide, approximately 27 million people currently live with paralysis, including many young people who must spend their entire lives in a wheelchair. With the campaign “Together against paralysis for and by young people”, Scholengemeenschap Were Di in Valkenswaard wants to inform as many young people as possible about the very serious consequences of paralysis. More importantly, thanks to an animation, we tell them how they can prevent this condition, simply by not doing crazy things to their bodies, and their lives!!! In the process, we are also raising money for scientific research to cure spinal cord injury. The money goes to the endParalysis foundation, which spends 100% of the funds raised on research into spinal cord injury cure. To support this action, we invite you to share this page with kids and parents, as much as possible, and to make a donation to fund spinal cord injury research by clicking (donate) below. Thank you in advance.
