20 August 2010 | 3:40 am

Challenge to Triumph and KB4girls present the Dream Extreme fundraising event in NY

While Linda and Kristin’s mutual passion for kiteboarding brought them together it was not long after they met when they realized that they can empower others even better by getting together in their affords for an amazing event. The idea of DREAM EXTREME was born.

Linda Argila says: “Kiting gives me strength and reinforces my self-confidence. It gives me that needed spark to recharge my spirit and attitude, creating positive energy in my life.”

Kristin Boese has to say: “Kiteboarding has changed my life. I am inspired to give back by bringing kiting to women worldwide through the KB4girls kiting clinics. The artistry and skill involved in kiteboarding resonates with females in particular, and every smile, every success story, every happy kiter, gives me new motivation to spread the power of kiting further.”

Both women want to take this positive energy they gain by kiteboarding and channel it into help for those in need, making DREAM EXTREME an event that combines kiteboarding with fund raising.

The event will benefit two nonprofit organizations – STEPS to End Family Violence, NYC (an Edwin Gould program) and The Retreat, East Hampton, who are both reaching out to those escaping domestic violence by supplying shelter, educating families and communities, promoting healing among victims and advocating toward an enhanced community understanding of domestic violence.

While many beach activities will be offered for those supporting the cause the KB4girls kiteboarding clinic, part of the DREAM EXTREME event, will continue to focus on empowering females through kiteboarding by teaching them the sport and/or helping them to improve their skills.

Kristin Boese: “This event is going to be amazing for everyone joining and a lot of fun. I am proud to be part of DREAM EXTREME with KB4girls and to be able to help to reach out to many children and women in need. The support for the event is absolutely amazing which enables us to supply a lot more to the KB4girls participants too. With 15 instructors, boat support, beach catering and much more they will experience the most amazing KB4girls event yet.”

Sponsorship packages, support packages and tickets to the Dinner Dance Party Are available to everyone that wants to support DREAM EXTREME and their cause. All participating girls as well as trainers also set a personal fundraising goal to be able to do their bit for the Victims of Domestic Violence.
