TYLER’S Dam That Cancer is the premier fundraising event for Flatwater Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides access to mental health services for those affected by cancer. Since inception, Flatwater has paid for over 46,000 hours of therapy.
This September, Lake Austin will provide the setting for the 12th annual TYLER’S Dam That Cancer, a 21-mile stand-up paddle and party on Monday, September 13, 2021. This year’s event will see a group of determined individuals show their commitment to those impacted by cancer with each paddler raising over $3,000 for Flatwater. Their reward – together they will travel the entire length of Lake Austin, from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam, testing their mental and physical limits on stand-up paddle boards. Why? To show support for families, friends, and all of those touched by cancer.
TYLER’S Dam That Cancer is the premier fundraising event for Flatwater Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides access to mental health services for those in need affected by cancer. The 11th annual 21 mile paddle took place on Monday, October 5th and raised over $838,000 for Flatwater! To date, the event has raised over $4,900,000 in support of families touched by a cancer diagnosis. While this year’s event was a little different, the mission was stronger than ever. Some paddlers chose to go virtual and complete the challenge on their own, while others paddled in small groups, with distance between them and determination in their hearts. This year’s efforts will enable over 11,500 hours of therapy for families in need touched by a cancer diagnosis.
