Our first winter Kiteboarding 4 Cancer event is taking place on the cool, windy plains of Saskatchewan, BC this February! Who would ever think that snow, kites, and wind make a great match, but snowkiting is growing faster than ever before! Here’s a chance to check it out and give to a great cause….
Regina’s Snowkite 4 Cancer February 13-15, 2009, will be our 3rd event in two years. All proceeds benefit the Canadian Cancer Society, which provides financial support for cancer research and delivers community-based support programs and prevention information for all types of cancer.
Events at the Winter Snowkite 4 Cancer will include a combination of events never done before in kiteboarding: A Speed Race, Endurance Race, High Jump, Long Jump, and Freeride Terrain Park. The site for the event, only 5 minutes from Regina, includes a warm up tent and is situated 8 minutes from the event’s Gold sponsor The Tap Brewing Co. The location is renowned to Saskatchewan kiters’ for its rolling terrain, 60’ wall of powder provided by train tracks, and a natural ½ pipe bowl created by an old dugout.
During the day entertainment will be organized for all ages. Ages 10- and under will have the opportunity to sign up for a sleigh rides behind kiteboarders. Ages 10+ and over will have an opportunity to fly a kite with all proceeds going to charity.
To end the day’s festivities participants will reconvene at The Tap, ages 19+, where DJ will keep everyone in tune and pumped up for the night. The silent auction items along with bragging rights will be awarded. There will be a check presentation to the CCS with the funds raised on Friday Feb. 28th.
