The John Wayne Cancer Foundation is partnering with KB4C this year as our primary charity sponsor, providing fundraising athletes with JWCF Team Duke packets (JWCF tee shirt, baseball cap, and sunscreen) and support to KB4C. We are thrilled to have JWCF involved! Last year, JWCF was one of our beneficiary organizations. Their enthusiasm for the health and energy contributions of the action sports community to give to the cause of cancer was so powerful that we’re doing it again with JWCF!


Celilo Cancer Center in The Dalles, Oregon is another 2008 partner and beneficiary of KB4C.
