The Story behind Kiteboarding 4 Cancer

Kiteboarding 4 Cancer (the event) and Athletes 4 Cancer (the organization) began from the hospital bed of 19-year old Scott Farman, fighting for his life with Leukemia. Sick of watching him suffer, his sister Tonia harnessed her passion for the outdoors to raise funds and awareness for cancer. In the process, what transpired was something much bigger. Recognizing the powerful healing combination of the elements, profound personal relationships, and overcoming personal challenges in the outdoors, a program was born that would memorialize Scott’s struggle with cancer and help future fighters rebuild their lives after cancer.

Kiteboarding 4 Cancer - July 12-14, 2013

Kiteboarding events take place on Saturday and Sunday kicking off with the 6-Hour Kite Derby Endurance Race. In this race, Kiteboarders endure strong current, variable winds, and stunningly distracting views to kiteboard a 3-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: vimeo.com/13261368 .

On Sunday, we continue the fun with the Relay-on-the-Green Team Relay Races. Teams of 4 kiteboarders are given instructions just 10 minutes before the start as to what they will be doing. 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 or various aspects of the event. Contact tonia@ athletes4cancer.org or download the sponsorship packet at goo.gl/klhjw.
