2017 TCS New York City Marathon

It is with great excitement we announce our partnership with the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon! We have gathered a very small group of individuals that will train, travel and participate in the marathon on behalf of Flatwater Foundation together. Each Flatwater participant is required to raise a minimum of $3,000. Learn more and support our team.


The second edition of our Flatwater Challenge series did not disappoint! In September, we took Lake Tahoe head-on – paddling 71 miles over 4 days. The beauty of the lake was magical; the conversations and memories created will be remembered and reflected on forever. In addition, the crew of 19 raised over $171,000 for Flatwater Foundation!

Our friends at D&D Media Collective were there to capture the journey and are in the process of creating a short film of the trip. A screening of the film will take place in Austin, after the New Year. Stay tuned! And thank you to D&D Media Collective for the time and energy you have dedicated to this project, thus far. We can’t wait for the world to see what we were fortunate to live.

TYLER'S Dam That Cancer

WE DID IT! Thank you to everyone that supported our efforts with kind words, encouragement, donations and even cheers at the end! With your support, the 2017 TYLER’S Dam That Cancer paddlers were able to raise over $650,000 and counting! All of this money will go directly to Flatwater Foundation to help so many families in need.
