599. Ride for the Roses Curaçao

8,000 people participated in the 10th annual Ride, Run, Swim and Walk for the Roses — nearly 3,000 more than last year. ‘Ride for the Roses’ represents Curaçao’s collective fight against cancer; our way of joining forces, sweating up a storm, and enjoying our beautiful island all while raising money for our Prinses Wilhelmina Fonds.

2014 by the numbers:

  • 6,500 walkers
  • 750 riders
  • 500 swimmers
  • 130 spinergy
  • 120 uphill challenge
Randhy Cuevas.

And last but certainly not least, Randhy Cuevas completed the first ever CLIMB TO THE ROSES reaching the top of the Christoffel — the tallest peak in Curaçao — 10 times over the course of 9 hours.

Special thanks to the 200 volunteers, ORCO bank and the other sponsors for making Ride for the Roses 2014 a HUGE success!!!

So many truly awesome Curaçao people…
