It was impressive to see so many people walking over the Juliana Bridge crossing from Otrabanda to Punda. Those who love this event had to wait an extra month, but according to those we interviewed, it was all worth it.

The 12th Ride, Swim and Walk for the Roses brought a record number of participants. More than 10,000 ran, walked, biked and swam in the fight against cancer for the Princess Wilhelmina Fund.

According to preliminary figures, just like last year, the event raised around half a million guilders.

If you did not participate this year, make sure you're part of one of Curaçao’s biggest events. It’s all for a good cause.
