Sunday, 07 December 2014

"We are helping life"World of Showjumping will be supporting an important show in the calendar next year: The Charity Show for Children's Cancer Aid held on the 20-22nd of March in Haselünne, Germany. A similar show was already organized in 2010 where 40 000 Euro were raised and donated to children with cancer at the University Hospital in Münster (

The show will feature a youngster tour for six and seven year old horses, a regional tour, a medium tour and a big tour with four S-classes. All riders competing will give half of their prize money to this good cause.

Organizer of the show is Ralf Prekel who has a very special story to tell about why he decided to make this event come true:

"My name is Ralf Prekel, I'm 34 years old and I would - with your help and support - like to organize a charity show jumping event for the "Children's Cancer Aid" in Münster for the second time around.

When I was 12 years old I was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. Hard times followed for my family and myself. The Children's Cancer Clinic at the University Hospital in Münster was my home for the next seven months. My thoughts were always on riding, even when I was weakened by the chemotherapies, and in the end the doctors let me go home for the weekends. The riding and the love for the horses gave me an unbelievable strength, and helped me to defeat the cancer. Also a second time years later.

With this charity show - and with your help - I would like to give some of what I once received back. Strength, hope and courage! I want to help the children that has been given the same fate.

You can expect exciting sport, great shows and a huge commitment during the 20-22nd of March 2015 in Haselünne. We have big expectations to be able to deliver a large donation to the "Vereins zur Förderung krebskranker Kinder Münster e.V." for their very valuable work.

My home club "der Reit- und Fahrverein Haselünne u.U." provides the arena and supports the show also in 2015. Help us make the Charity Show on the 20-22nd of March a success, and contribute towards making the situation for children with cancer a little bit more bearable.

Best wishes, Ralf Prekel"
