Crossing for Prevention 2022 is a historic swim by Deaxo Croes between sister islands, Bonaire and Curaçao. This extraordinary swim happens on Saturday, the 19th of November 2022. Deaxo’s journey covers approximately 53 KM in the Caribbean Sea, from the west coast of Bonaire to the east point of Curaçao.

Deaxo Croes is an Aruban Open Water swimmer. In 2018 he swam from Venezuela to Aruba together with five other swimmers to fulfill a dream and social cause to raise cancer awareness in Aruba. This time, Deaxo’s dream is to include Bonaire and Curaçao in his cause to raise cancer awareness and to promote the colossal work tirelessly done by the local cancer foundations. Together with a team of professional kayakers, doctors, nutritionist and other team mates, Deaxo strives for human passion and excellence for a cause that could touch each one of us. Cancer causes about 1 in e every 6 deaths worldwide. Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death only preceded by cardiovascular disease.

Crossing for Prevention is an event to raise awareness and seek generous financial support from the local communities to the cancer foundations.
