Flatwater, the Austin-based nonprofit organization that provides mental health therapy in the wake of cancer, is hosting their annual fundraising event, Flatwater’s Dam That Cancer presented by TYLER’S on Monday, September 11, 2023.
This year marks the 14th annual Dam That Cancer, the premier fundraising event for Flatwater, in which 230 select participants will complete a 21-mile course from Lake Austin’s Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam to benefit the Foundation’s mission of providing mental health therapy for Central Texans impacted by cancer. Following a record-breaking 2022 event that raised over $1.2 million, this year’s paddlers have committed to raising $1.3 million to support the ever-growing demand for mental health services for those taking on a cancer diagnosis.
Flatwater provides mental health therapy in the wake of cancer. Flatwater connects individuals with therapists to help clear their mind, heal their body and find the strength to take on a diagnosis. Since its inception in 2010, Flatwater has raised over $8 million and covered over 60,000 hours of therapy for those who would otherwise have no means to pay for care. One of Flatwater’s premier fundraising events, Dam That Cancer, a 10-hour stand up paddle event, will take place on Sept. 11, 2023.
