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 for the third annual Dam That Cancer fundraiser, a 21-mile stand-up paddle and party on Monday, June 4, 2012.
Participants will raise money to paddle individually, or in teams. Those that register as a team will be allowed a maximum of 4 team members to participate in the 21-mile paddle, as a relay.
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 unforgettable journey on stand-up paddle boards for over eight hours under the hot Texas sun. Why? To show support for families, friends, and all of those touched by cancer.
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 – the incredible decks of Hula Hut! Everyone's invited! A donation of $50 or more will even qualify you as a DTC-VIP at the party - with some extra special benefits.
