Athletes 4 Cancer
The 7th Annual Kiteboarding 4 Cancer will take place July 12-14, 2013 in Hood River, Oregon. North America’s largest amateur kiteboarding event will once again draw kiters from around the globe for a cause that touches all of us. Can’t make it this year? Please consider a donation.
The event Kiteboarding 4 Cancer and the organization Athletes 4 Cancer 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.
