Kiting in Costume

June 17, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

-642Days -7Hours -9Minutes -30Seconds

This two hour event is open to all capable riders with the encouragement to come out and kite in costume (family appropriate) for the day. Girl on a Board kiteboarding School will also be at the dock offering 15min Trainer kite lessons for donations during the afternoon.
We are Partnering up with the Port Authority for their Port family Days Celebration. This day falls on the Solstice as well and there are evening events planned by a summer’s art group.

Our fundraising format is as follows

• Registered Riders (via email) to gather pledges for their sponsored participation
• Fundraising Kettles will be at event site for Spectators and By passers to donate

Riders may register at

Aside from the kettles all fundraising donations will be done through the children’s hospital online donation page provided by the Children’s hospital Foundation. This will allow us 100% transparency and 100% proceeds to the foundation. It will also allow easy access to those donating to get a tax receipt. As the last benefit, we are able to track all donations to be able to identify pledges made for individual riders and their amounts.

We have planned each event to be held on a day other activities are occurring to provide alternate entertainment should wind not cooperate. In the event we have a no wind day that event will be forwarded to the next event day and we’ll be creative to make it work. Should it not be windy on our final day we may consider holding over till the Sunday if the forecast looks promising. We do not plan on extending any events past the Canada Day weekend.


We will require all riders to sign a waiver of responsibility to participate.
We have additional liability coverage for spectators provided by three insurance agency sponsors which will be identified here on our web site.

Thank you to our event sponsors!
