Kiteboarding 4 Kids: A charity event for all ages
The 2010 Kiteboarding 4 Kids (the 2nd annual) was a massive and overwhelming success. Using a kiteboarding contest as our vehicle we raised over 20,000 USD in cash to donate to local Dominican charities.
KB4K is a special type of event because it’s one of the only that we know about where an event raises money for poor children and the majority of the participants in the event are themselves the poor children who will receive the help.
We are rearing to go for 2011, the date is set:
10-13 March, 2011 right here at LEK in Cabarete
To make this event a success we need kiteboarders who are passionate about not only riding but also to giving back. Riders can do fundraising and win fabulous prizes – the top prize is a week stay in a beautiful beachfront villa right in Cabarete Bay!!
The competition is only for fun, but the two disciplines are: short distance racing (one tack around a buoy and back to the beach) and big air. This is something riders of all levels can participate in. Beyond the fun at the beach we have great evening festivities and it’s an incredible way to be a part of something very special.
