KB4C directly impacts lives affected by cancer right NOW.
The 6th Annual Kiteboarding 4 Cancer will take place in Hood River, Oregon on July 13-15, on the beautiful Columbia River. Commonly known as "KB4C", Kiteboarding 4 Cancer empowers kiteboarders from all over to race and endure in a 6 Hour Kite Derby Endurance Race and Team Relay kiteboarding events to raise money for Athletes for Cancer.
The actual kiteboarding events take place on Saturday and Sunday starting with the 6-Hour Kite Derby Endurance Race. In this race, Kiteboarders endure strong current, variable winds, and stunningly distracting views to kiteboard a 2-mile course in laps, for 6 hours. The goal is to get the most number of laps over the 6 hour period. Athletes can come in and out of the water anytime during the 6 hours, but are encouraged to go the distance! Watch the start of last year's race: http://vimeo.com/13261368 .
On Sunday, we continue the fun with the Relay-on-the-Green Team Races. Sounds like kiteboarding on the lawn? Well, some of it is! Teams of 4 kiteboarders are given instructions just 10 minutes before the start as to what they will be doing. All they know is they will be kiteboarding. It's always a surprise. This is one of the most entertaining events of the weekend! Sponsors are invited to participate and sponsor a team for the Relay-on-the-Green Team Races. Contact tonia@ athletes4cancer.org for more info.
