Tyler's 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 once again provide the setting for the fifth anniversary of Tyler's Dam That Cancer. It'll be another great year for a 21-mile stand-up paddle and party on Monday, June 9th, 2014.
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 $2,000 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 and mental limits as they take this journey on stand-up paddle boards for over eight hours under the hot Texas sun.
Please take a moment to learn more about our paddlers, and consider making a donation in support of our entire group, or an individual paddler taking a stand for mental health. Proceeds from this event will provide access to mental health and wellness programs for those affected by cancer who can not otherwise afford it.
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 one and only Hula Hut! Arrive at 5pm to cheer the team on as they paddle in from the days triumph of 21 miles. Everyone's invited! A donation of $200 or more will even qualify you as a Tyler's DTC-VIP! See you there!
