Tyler's Dam that Cancer
June 3, 2013
3825 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, TX 78703
Dam That Cancer
is the premier fundraising event for The Flatwater Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides access to mental health services for those in need affected by cancer. This summer, Lake Austin will provide the setting once again for the fourth annual Tyler's Dam That Cancer fundraiser. This year’s event will see a group of determined individuals show their commitment in the global fight against cancer, with each paddler raising over $1,500 for The Flatwater Foundation. Their reward – together they will travel the entire length of Lake Austin, from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam – 21 miles – testing their physical limits as they take this journey on stand-up paddle boards for over eight hours under the hot Texas sun. Even if you aren’t one of the lucky paddlers in this year’s event, everyone will have the opportunity to participate and show support by attending our “We Paddle, You Party” fundraising celebration at the finish line – at the one and only Hula Hut! Everyone's invited! A donation of $100 or more will even qualify you as a Tyler's DTC-VIP! See you there!
