Dream Rides Curaçao collected ANG 102,373.00 for RMHC Curaçao Foundation

On June 24, 2022, the Curaçao resident Gerd Glaudemans and the DreamRides Netherlands team started the incredible bike ride of a total of 822 kilometers and approximately 20,000 meters of incline over various mountains and passed cities through the Swiss and French Alps. 



With this fantastic effort, Gerd and his team wanted to raise awareness and collect money for the childhood cancer fund, a special initiative within the Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao Foundation. It was an extreme difficult journey that takes courage, sacrifices and intense suffering. But at those moments, they realized how frightening it could be for our little patients, who fight for their lives on a daily basis.

With a grateful heart Gerd Glaudemans handed over a cheque of ANG. 102.373,00 to the team of Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao Foundation. This amount is available for supporting our kids with cancer and their family members.

A message from Gerd Glaudemans:

A serious cycling accident in 2019, in which I broke my hip and shoulder in several places, made me realize that good health and mobility are not self-evident and that there is a great need in society for helping fellow humans in difficult circumstances. That's why I want to contribute to an explicit charity every year. For 2022, this will be Dreamrides, in collaboration with the Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao Foundation, a Curaçao foundation that has been doing great supportive work in and outside the hospital for years. The fact that this event concerns childhood cancer makes it extra special if you have three children of your own that are growing up in good health, something that one might 'just' assume as a parent. Children with a disease are dependent and vulnerable. Because the environment often focuses mainly on treating the disease, these children are ending up unwittingly in an adult world. I believe that children should be able ‘to be just children’ and face a carefree future!
