Welcome to my fundraising page!  

On June 12, I will be stand-up paddle boarding 21 miles on the Colorado River to raise money for a cause that is so close to my heart! As many of you know, i lost my mom to cancer in 2005. What most of you do not know is that in 2010 I became involved with an amazing organization called Young Texan's Against Cancer (YTAC) and was president of the YTAC Austin Chapter from 2014-2016.  In 2014 YTAC brought on Flatwater Foudation as one of 8 grant recipients for the year and the partnership has flourished since.  The work that is being done through both organizations is incredibly impactful, especially on a local level and it is through Dam That Cancer and this Journey that Flatwater is able to have the impact that it does on so many lives.   

I would love to have you join my team and help me support The Flatwater Foundation by donating. Your donation will provide access to mental health care for individuals and families touched by a cancer diagnosis that would otherwise not be able to get the care they need. I am working to raise at least $2,000 to embark on this 21-mile journey to take a stand, and will once again be paddling with a great friend who is also passionate about the cause, Russell Thomman. Please consider sponsoring one of my 21 miles with a donation to help ensure we meet our goal!

The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide, and we hope you can celebrate with us all on June 12, at the LCRA Lawn at Tom Miller Dam (adjacent to Hula Hut). Learn more at tylersdtc.com

If you can’t make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

I can't thank you enough for the support!
