DreamRides is the perfect blend of adventure and philanthropy, combining a thrilling physical endurance bike challenge with raising funds for children and their families who are battling childhood cancer. In 2022, DreamRides raised an impressive total of over 91,000 euros for a variety of causes, including the Princess Maxima Center for pediatric oncology, the Childhood Cancer fund of Ronald McDonald House of Charities in Curaçao, and the Willow Fund in Canada.

Each year, DreamRides embarks on a challenging multi-day bike ride over rugged terrain, providing participants with a truly unforgettable experience. In 2023, they conquered the Pyrenees, cycling from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean in just six days at the end of June (June 24-30th, 2023).

Be a part of something truly remarkable and support the DreamRides Curacao delegation in 2023, led by the passionate and dedicated Gerd Glaudemans and Oz Marchena, as they work towards their goal of providing crucial support for children with cancer and other chronic diseases at the Curacao Medical Center (CMC). In collaboration with the Ronald McDonald House Charities team, DreamRides Curacao is committed to expanding the CMC’s incredible sports and exercise program, ensuring that these brave young patients have access to the resources they need to stay active and healthy. Join us and help make a difference in the lives of sick children – your support can truly change lives!

The sports and exercise program is designed to keep patients active during their hospital stay, increasing their chances of a successful recovery and reducing the risk of late effects. Plus, it’s a fantastic distraction for our kids, providing them with a fun and engaging way to stay active and focused on their health.

Did you know?

Studies show that patients who engage in physical activity during their hospital stay tend to have shorter hospital stays, retain more strength and stamina, and are able to resume their normal activities more quickly. That's why many hospitals are now striving to become "movement hospitals," where patients are actively encouraged to get out of bed and participate in a range of activities throughout their stay. By promoting physical activity and movement, these hospitals are helping patients to recover more quickly, while also improving their overall quality of life. Join the movement and support hospitals in their mission to create a healthier, more active environment for patients!
