The 2008 Kiteboarding 4 Cancer is officially scheduled for Saturday, August 9 in Hood River, Oregon, with a backup day for wind set for Sunday, August 10. This year brings more prizes, more silent auction items, and a new event as part of the day: the Freestyle contest! Come visit the beautiful Columbia River Gorge during the best season for kiteboarding! August is the best month for warm wind, warm water, and beautiful scenery.

The John Wayne Cancer Foundation is partnering with KB4C this year as our primary charity sponsor, providing fundraising athletes with JWCF Team Duke packets (JWCF tee shirt, baseball cap, and sunscreen) and support to KB4C. We are thrilled to have JWCF involved! Last year, JWCF was one of our beneficiary organizations. Their enthusiasm for the health and energy contributions of the kiteboarding community to give to the cause of cancer was so powerful that we’re doing it again with JWCF!

* 8-hour Endurance race
* Freestyle contest
