Empowering athletes to impact lives

The Tenacity Games is a series of outdoor adventure events celebrating athletic determination and spirit while impacting lives affected by cancer. Each event carries a common theme of participation:

To take on a unique challenge and endure to the point of exhaustion, testing both mental and physical tenacity, embodying the struggle someone going through cancer faces every day.

This means endurance. Each event is unique and unlike any other event within its sport. The Tenacity Games events embrace and celebrate the amateur athlete. Our current events under the Tenacity Games: Paddle 4 Cancer, Kiteboard 4 Cancer, Boards of Hope and Kayak 4 Cancer.

First event of 2012 Tenacity Games: Kiteboarding 4 Cancer

On July 13-15, 200 kiteboarders will ascend on Hood River and take part in the country’s largest amateur kiteboarding event to benefit a great cause. Registration and fundraising is open now.

2011 Results: Over 200 athletes and $100,000 raised. Epic!

The Tenacity Games raised over $100,000 for our Survivorship and Prevention programs in the fight against cancer!  Mother nature once again provided 3 perfect days for this annual event, with each event receiving it’s ideal conditions. Thousands of spectators flocked from all over the west coast and beyond to witness this series of unique watersports events and contribute to the cause of cancer awareness and prevention.
