Forty sponsors for Ride for the roses

WILLEMSTAD  For the ninth edition of Ride for The Roses, which takes place on January 20 in Curacao, the organization has pulled forty new sponsors into the event. Through the call center, these new sponsors agreed to cooperate.

The Foundation Ride for the Roses aims to raise awareness for cancer. Therefore, two events are held annually: the Uphill Challenge, where participants climb Fort Nassau hill, and the Ride for the Roses, where participants participate in cycling, running and swimming. The money that is brought in, goes to workers, scientists and doctors who are committed to the prevention of cancer. For example, last year, they purchased new equipment for the Curacao Hospital Sehos which irradiation time can be significantly shortened.
