The Flatwater Foundation has been helping individuals diagnosed with cancer, and their families, gain "access to mental health therapy and family support" at NO cost for a decade. They say a cancer diagnoses can create waves in someone's life, and the nonprofit is there to help them find the 'flatwater' again. On June 10th, OVER TWO HUNDRED paddle boarders will paddle 21 miles in the 10th Annual TYLER'S Dam That Cancer to raise a boatload of cash for the Flatwater Foundation.
Mark Garza, founder of the Flatwater Foundation, started this event as a one off stunt to raise awareness for the lack of access to mental health therapy for families diagnosed with cancer. He searched for organizations to help individuals and families when his Dad was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and realized there was a void in the system, so he filled it. TYLER'S Dam That Cancer is now an annual event that raises HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars to directly benefit families going through a cancer diagnoses. This year, the Flatwater Foundation's goal is to raise over $1,000,000. That is awesome. Mark stopped by Local Insights to help spread the word about this heroic event to help benefit individuals and families going through cancer diagnoses. Spread the word! #DAMTHATCANCER
Check out some highlights from the 2018 TDTC. This year, the goal is to raise over ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
