Charity SUP Race in November 2011
The season is rapidly approaching and the Tampa Kiteboarding community is putting together something very special this year. Many of you know of Kite4Cancer out west in the gorge. There is also Kite4Girls around the globe.
This year's race is titled Kite4Kids. It is a charity race for All Children's Hospital of St. Petersburg, FL. Kite4Kids however is going to be far more than just a downwind kiteboarding race this year.....ready.......
First off, we are planning a huge festival on Treasure Island beach to kick off this year's event.
Activities will include but not be limited to:
Stay tuned as we are in the final stages of our website which will be the information hub for this event. Detailed information as well as race registration will be on the website. This event will have up to 100 volunteers with likely 500+ participants. The goal is the raise $25K.
We need your help and participation to make this a success. Donations, sponsorship leads, auction/raffle items, race participation, event participation, and volunteers will collectively take this to a whole new level.
We are still seeking a title sponsor for the event, so if you or someone you know might be interested, let me know ASAP.
I am sure you have many questions, and once the website goes live, I am sure they will be answered. www.kite4kids.co
In the meantime, if you are interested in volunteering for the event or would like to sponsor and/or offer up raffle/auction prizes please contact me ASAP. See below
We are working closely with Action Sports Foundation, 5013c to pull this all together. We couldn't do it without them.
Finally, networking is a powerful tool these days. So riders, shops, instructors, and whoever else reads this, please cut and paste into your email lists, Facebook, Twitter, and any other means you have to help spread the word. We don't want anyone left out.
Stay tuned and thank you!
