An Amazing Ride for the Roses, 2016 edition

The first weekend of September, some 140 colleagues, family and friends of Nature's Pride along with thousands of others fought against cancer by cycling in the Ride for the Roses. This year the event took place in Twente and the distances of the courses were 25, 50 or 100 km. A total of no less than € 585.000 was raised of which Nature's Pride contributed more than € 70.000!
Finally, after months of preparation Sunday, September 4th arrived. At 10.00 on the dot, the official ceremony of the Ride for the Roses began. As a surprise we were allowed to start first this year. It was a beautiful sight to see nearly 85 participants leave to ride the 100 km. Then the ceremony for the 25 and 50 km started and again the participants of Nature's Pride were allowed to start first.


It was a stunning course in a wonderful location. Even after a hefty downpour just after the start, it crossed no one's mind, not even for a second, to stop because giving up is not an option!
Around 14:00 everybody arrived together and received a warm welcome from the people who had come along to support them.

The end result was a magnificent amount of € 585,000, of which Nature's Pride raised more than
€ 70,000! This year the money will be spent on researching leukaemia. The fight against cancer is far from over and it makes us Proud to cycle for the Ride of the Roses again. To everyone who helped make this weekend a great success, thank you very much for your contribution to this beautiful edition of the Ride for the Roses.
