2011 Kiteboarding 4 Cancer Info & Schedule of Events, powered by the John Wayne Cancer Foundation!

The 2011 Kiteboard 4 Cancer powered by the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, is heading into its 5th year! This is the main  event of the Tenacity Games — a multi-day, multi-sport adventure fundraiser for regional cancer programs and Athletes for Cancer’s cancer survivorship program.

This year’s kiteboarding event adds more spice and fun than ever before with the addition of the 1st ever Team Kite Relay Race, a test of speed, strategy, and cooperation in addition to sprinting kiteboarding skills!

The Kite Derby Endurance Race, the original and cornerstone event of Kiteboarding 4 Cancer continues to challenge racers endurance, determination, and mental tenacity for 6-hours. The most challenging event in the 3-day fundraiser, the Kite Derby will demand  the most out of the most physically and mentally fit athletes.
