KB4C Call for Art

The Artist the Canvas
Just before his cancer came back, my brother painted this for my birthday.

Kiteboarding for Cancer invites artists of all mediums to submit entries for a city-wide exhibit in Hood River as part of our annual fundraiser. Read all about KB4C here.

Kiteboarding 4 Cancer is dedicated to harnessing the healing power of wind and water with the determination of the human spirit to benefit those affected by cancer through funding of advocacy, prevention, and survivorship programs. Kiteboarders race in a 6-hour Kite Derby endurance race along with other water sport events on the mighty Columbia River to raise funds for the cause of cancer.
