One click to support the march against paralysis
One click to Send a message of support to Joe and to major newspapers across the world to let them know what Joe Kals is doing.
Join the Facebook page 'Walking on the moon with Joe Kals'.
Many people don't know Joe Kals, and I didn't either until I read about him walking 1325km from north to south across France - and Joe can't walk. He has been a paraplegic for thirty years. His 1325km trek is being done with braces and crutches.
Joe is raising money and awareness for what many scientists already believe is possible, a cure for paralysis - so that you, and I, and Joe may one day walk across the beauty of France without braces and crutches.
Now that I've told you what Joe IS doing, let me tell you what he isn't doing.
He isn't raising funds and awareness for...
...a more inclusive world for those with SCI.
...a barrier free world so we can ride our chairs wherever we wish.
All admirable things, but Joe is doing this for ONE reason only, "So that human beings can live life without the consequences of spinal cord injury."
Watch our video and send this to your friends, colleagues, and family to let them know that a cure for spinal cord injury IS possible.
Make a donation to Joe by visiting his website at http://www.joekals.com/. The site is in French but click 'faire un don' in the upper left hand corner. All money raised will be donated to the French organization ALARME which is 100% dedicated to a cure for spinal cord injury.
