Big things are happening at KB4C! Our little fundraiser in 2007 has evolved in a very big way to embrace more people passionate for doing what they already love to benefit lives affected by cancer. Thank you to everyone who has supported Kiteboarding 4 Cancer in recent years. The KB4C event will still go on just like it has every year! Here’s what’s new:
- Athletes for Cancer: We changed the organization name to expand our reach beyond kiteboarding to embrace the many passionate outdoors people doing something active for the cause.
- Survivorship Adenture Camps: This is our own cancer retreat program for young adults with cancer. We may add other specific survivor groups in the future as well (breast cancer, 40-50 yrs, etc) These adventure camps serve to help survivors gain confidence and strengthen self-esteem as they face life after cancer.
- The Tenacity Games: We are bringing all of our sports (Kite, SUP, and now Skate, Kayak) under one event name – The Tenacity Games. This just makes sense, and all events will raise funds for partnering beneficiaries plus Athletes 4 Cancer.
The 2011 Tenacity Games (which includes Kiteboarding 4 Cancer, Skate 4 Cancer, Kayak 4 Cancer, and SUP 4 Cancer) is July 8-10th in Hood River, Oregon.
