Right after the beginning of the new year, Tonia Farman came to The Next Door to present Nuestra Comunidad Sana with a check.
She and all the volunteers of Kiteboarding 4 Cancer work so incredibly hard to put on the event every year. We are blessed to be one of the recipients of their hard earned donations for our breast cancer outreach program through Nuestra Comunidad Sana. This year, the atheletes in the two-day event raised over $43,000 which was then matched by the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.
One of the great things about the event this year was that NCS was able to donate some time in a kitemaking tent for kids and also encourage local Latinos to come visit. For some, it was the first time they’d ever seen kiteboarding. We also arranged for a local family to sell Mexican food at the event, as part of our microenterprise program. All in all, a perfect opportunity to share!
Thank you, Tonia, athletes, KB4C and John Wayne Cancer Foundation for everything!
