Fewer, but really special participants at the Donkey Walk 2018

Aruba Bound

Although the organizers of the annual Donkey Walk may normally count on 200 to 300 participants, this year there were a lot fewer athletes who showed up. This was due to the fact that another walk took place in Parke Arikok that day. But that did not spoil the fun as more than one hundred participants joined in a terrific walk through Aruba’s fantastic nature. Three lovely donkeys walked along – they finished the almost 6 kilometers with ease.

Most participants are walking at the Donkey Walk, but there are also the runners, who are fiercely committed to finish with a good result. First in the Women’s Category was Elizabether Kelkboom; Mito Werleman was first in the Men’s Division. Ransey de Cuba, 17 years old and a student at the Emmaschool, finished in his wheelchair – it had been his fervent wish to participate and the Off Road Wheelchair Aruba foundation saw to it that Ransey could use an electric wheelchair and an assistant. Ransey was probably the participant who enjoyed the Donkey Walk the most. Smiling a big smile he crossed the finish line and went straight to the table where the fruit (courtesy of SuperFood) was laid out. He also loved the gift that Matthew’s restaurant donated to all participants. Well done, Ransey!
