Last evening I had the pleasure of dining with the folks from KiteBoarding4Cancer, dynamite organization from Portland Oregon. Two vibrant folks Tonia and Garret started KB4C. They, too, raise funds for cancer advocacy, prevention and survivorship.
AND, they host Survivorship Camps for young survivors ages 18-40. This year they will be traveling to Maui Hawaii for Kiteboarding, Standup Paddling and Surfing Camps. These camps link the ocean’s ability to heal and empower with supportive and knowledgeable instructors. Thru my own experience of learning to kiteboard and to paddle an outrigger canoe on Maui I know the power of overcoming obstacles and believing again in the strength of one’s body.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, they are looking for survivors to attend, so please, spread the word.
