RECAP: 7th Annual Tyler’s Dam That Cancer

Benefiting The Flatwater Foundation

The Flatwater Foundation held its 7th annual Tyler’s Dam That Cancer event on Lake Austin earlier this week and attracted a record 160 participants. The organization also exceeded its monetary goals by raising a whopping $515,000 to help fund critical mental health programs.

2016 was the biggest year yet for the 21-mile standup paddle board journey from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam, culminating in a celebration on the LCRA Lawn to welcome the paddlers to shore. Once there, participants and supporters enjoyed music spun by DJ Abe the Assassin, plus food & drinks and a live auction/raffle.
