The 5th Annual Kiteboard 4 Cancer — What’s on!

Year 5… can you believe it? This year we’ve got some special events planned that you won’t want to miss. We really want to thank our athletes for being involved in this incredible cause year after year! Here’s what’s on the agenda:

Friday, July 8th

Volunteers, Athletes, & VIP Waterfront Dinner

Hood River Event Site, 6:00 pm: An annual tradition, the kickoff dinner for our valued volunteers, athletes, and sponsors is an incredible spread of good food, good drinks, amazing desserts and a preview of the silent and live auction items.

Hoopin & Healing Kickoff Party

British Pub, 4th & Oak, 8:30 pm: Who doesn’t love people randomly hula hooping to live music?? This is the 2nd year we are running the Hula Hoop kickoff party with contests, a hoop-a-thon, and Tony Smiley playing live to the entire thing. Hoopers from all over will take over the corner of 4th & Oak at the British Pub parking lot for this unique and very entertaining event! All proceeds benefit Athletes for Cancer.
