Kiteboarding to Athletes for Cancer
February 1, 2011
We are all… Athletes for Cancer . Whichever way we choose to move our bodies across the earth — We all do it with tenacity, determination, and passion to battle this disease.
As we charge ahead into 2011 and begin our own programs, the Kiteboarding 4 Cancer organization is evolving to reach more people and ultimately touch more lives. In keeping with our mission, but broadening our impact, the Kiteboarding 4 Cancer organization is changing its name to Athletes 4 Cancer.
Athletes 4 Cancer will continue to run our annual fundraising event in the summer that will include the Kiteboarding 4 Cancer, Standup Paddle 4 Cancer, and other action sports events under one event umbrella, all for our and other regional cancer programs that directly benefit
lives affected by cancer.
Athletes 4 Cancer is kicking off our first year of programs with young adult survivorship camps, to be hosted in Hawaii, Oregon, and other locations soon TBA! We are so stoked! These are why we do what we do!!
Athletes 4 Cancer will conduct and support events to help raise funds for our camp program as well as regional cancer programs that we love to support!
As we transition into Athletes 4 Cancer , you’ll still see KB4C around. Bear with us — the name change doesn’t happen overnight. And keep in mind that KB4C the event is not going anywhere — Kiteboarding 4 Cancer will continue to run as the most impactful kiteboarding event in North America.
