The tailor-made functioning of To Walk Again (organization of sports activities, altitude rehabilitation, applied research) of course has a high price tag. To Walk Again is fully dependent on your donations and actions.
Hundreds of volunteers of the warm To Walk Again family therefore organize numerous fundraising events. Do you also support To Walk Again? Do not hesitate. Set up an action too! Every little bit helps.
Can you use some inspiration to set up an action? We would like to help you think up and communicate your action.
We list the most common actions: Food festivities (breakfasts, bbqs, spaghetti evenings), sports activities (running relays, sponsored runs like the Dodentocht or 20km runs, bike rides, ...), sales (cakes, caps, yes ... even champagne), expos, auctions, and shows.
Two Belgian ultrarunners are embarking on an incredible adventure: running 25,000 kilometers, from Alaska to Argentina, all the way to Ushuaia, the end of the world.
This is a marathon every day for two years... no less than 590 marathons.
Six friends set up this action. The runners are assisted by 4 companions. They live frugally on the road - in their converted pickup jeeps - but return generously with at least 1€ per kilometer for To Walk Again.
David was the victim of an unfortunate accident in 2011, in which he was struck on the head by a falling tree. The result: an incomplete paralysis that reached to nipple height. In 2017, David learned about To Walk Again. 'A turning point,' says David, 'I have been following an intense rehabilitation program ever since, where my situation improved noticeably. Previously paralyzed muscles in the trunk and arms have partially to fully returned to actiivity and strength.'
David, meanwhile, participates in the Run To Walk Again every year and sets up actions. For example, David organized a benefit Piano recital by Ukrainian Dmytro Sukhovienko, one of the most talented pianists of his generation. In a packed cultural center Jan Tervaert the audience enjoyed not only a beautiful piano concert, but also the empathy for rehabilitating people with disabilities after their accident.
David Boel and friends collected no less than 11.000€ for To Walk Again.
Within the framework of the Warmest Week, wonderful actions are organized each year in support of To Walk Again.
In October, the team of To Walk Again will spend a week in the shoes of people with a physical disability. How? We spend as much time as possible in a wheelchair. During 1 week, from morning to evening. Everywhere: home, office, store, street. Car-in car-out. With trial and error, up to the point of acidification.
In this way, we want to give our members and rehabbers a boost and experience for themselves the obstacles they have to overcome on a daily basis. In 2019, we collected € 6,137.71 with our 6-member team in a short period of time. A successful experiment that we want to roll out more broadly in 2020.
Would you like to organize a Warmest Wheelchair Week yourself? Give us a call, we can facilitate you.
