After the Netherlands and Curaçao, Bonaire now also has its own Foundation Ride for the Roses. The foundation was established on 7 January 2016. Its purpose is to raise funds for the battle against cancer by organizing sports events. Together with seven other enthusiastic directors, Tom Peeters initiated the formation of this foundation.
The first events are scheduled for April 2016, for which the foundation collaborates with the foundation Prinses Wilhelminafonds Bonaire and is supported by main sponsor Orco Bank. Everyone is welcome to join the events organized by the foundation. At the finish of every ride, walk or swim, all participants receive a red rose, a symbol for a new day for everyone. This way, a contribution is made to the fight against cancer in an active, healthy and fun manner.
