Together, prevention of spinal cord injury
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.€2.337 donated of €1.000 goal
Donations to SCI research as birthday present
My name is Lea, I am 19 years old and I became a quadriplegic (all four limbs are paralyzed) after a car accident. My life is now forever changed and I am dependent on the help of others for any basic activity, such as getting out of bed, doing my hair, going to the bathroom, etc. What about my future? It is right in front of me and I can still influence it. For my next birthday, I do not wish to receive a “STUFF”. I am tired of STUFF! I prefer HOPE… HOPE for me and for the millions of people around the world who are currently living with a spinal cord injury. For me, HOPE means SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH to cure paralysis. We need more research devoted entirely to the functional recovery of people currently living with spinal cord injury. That’s why I created this page to collect donations for spinal cord injury research as a birthday gift. You can make a donation to spinal cord injury research by clicking on the donate button below. Your donation will go to the endParalysis Foundation. They are the real deal: they use 100% of your donation to fund regenerative research to cure chronic paralysis. Thank you very much in advance!€1.090 donated of €1.000 goal
Marion’s challenge: walk the Handelse Processie for my father
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. Do you want to support me? Then click on “Donate” below. 100% of your donation goes to spinal cord injury research!€825 donated of €500 goal

Corinne’s Unfreeze challenge: yoga for paraplegic
Welcome to Corinne’s “Unfreeze Your Body/ Mind challenge”: yoga for paraplegic. Breathe, get grounded, “rise above”… This is the promise of yoga … also for people living with a spinal cord injury. Therefore, I am challenging myself to learn full-body paraplegic yoga and to practice it on a regular basis. Yoga courses for physically challenged people are rare and I am learning on my own, with the help of internet. My end goal is to post various pictures of yoga asanas (poses), and ultimately to make and share a video that will help others to get started.€9.790 donated of €10.000 goal

Eric’s Unfreeze challenge: je veux m’alléger !
Les années passent et on se sent de plus en plus lourd, de tous points de vue. Il est temps pour moi de me bouger et de m’alléger d’une dizaine de kg. J’ai voulu me lancer ce défi souvent, très souvent… Mais je n’ai jamais réussi à continuer. Alors, pour m’aider à tenir, je prends le défi Unfreeze avec la fondation endParalysis et invite mes amis à me soutenir par leurs dons! Une idée : qui versera quelques euros pour chaque kilo que je perds ( cliquez sur bouton Donate pour donner à la fondation) ? Cela serait un fantastique encouragement !€500 donated of €500 goal
Mayra’s Unfreeze challenge: Meditate and bike!
For a long time already, I have been willing to create a routine to meditate. I have experienced all the benefits of meditation like quieting my mind (from the outside noise), observing and understanding my deeper feelings and finding inner peace. I know meditation can help me enjoy my present life more. So, I’ll work hard to create this routine in three months. Because body and mind are much interlinked, I also plan to bike and to invite friends to bike with me! Please support me through donations to the endParalysis foundation (Donate button below). 100% of your donations go to research to cure spinal cord injury. Thanks!€370 donated of €300 goal

Corinne’s challenge: Therapeutic walking with spinal cord injury
Therapeutic walking with spinal cord injury AND raise funds to cure paralysis, that’s my challenge. Welcome to my “Unfreeze Your Body” Challenge! This picture is real, it is me, “walking” on the Van Gogh cycling path… Before the beginning of my Unfreeze challenge, I felt more “paralyzed” than I should…That’s exactly why I wanted to stretch my limits! I just didn’t want to be glued to my chair anymore. I knew that I needed to move, use my whole body, including my legs, even if it’s only on a therapeutic basis. My target: do therapeutic walking again and move my body about four hours per week. Want to encourage me? Please click on Donate below. All funds go to research to cure spinal cord injury via the endParalysis foundation. Thanks!€15.746 donated of €10.000 goal
