My friend (and prokiteboarder) Tonia Farman is once again planning and hosting a super fun stand up paddle event this summer. If you're a wind junky/SUP competitor migrating across the country, put this one on the calender. You should definitely get involved with this event- it's for a great cause and it sounds like it's going to be a ton of fun!

Tonia is just getting ready to roll out the event and I'm happy to be able to help her get the word out. Stay tuned for more information about the event in upcoming posts. Here's what I've got right now:
SUP 4 Cancer - July 10-11, 2010 in Hood River, Oregon
Paddle 4 Cancer is an SUP race dedicated to embracing the healing power of water (mother nature!) with the determination of the human spirit to benefit those affected by cancer through funding of advocacy, prevention, and survivorship programs.
SUP4C will consist of a 7-mile downwinder, Relay Race, Full Contact Race, and various other "fun" races that only require an open mind and creativity! All proceeds will benefit various west coast cancer organizations including the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, Children's Healing Art Project, and SUP 4 Cancer's Survivorship Camps!!
Call for volunteers! Tonia needs help- come be a part of something great, get a free beer and a tee shirt... and a billion karma points. Contact Tonia here: Tonia@kb4c.org
