CAP 2K OPEN WATER RACE AND PLEDGE SWIM FUNDRAISER
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
The 15th Annual Cap 2k Open Water Race & Pledge Swim, the only "downhill swim" in Texas, is Austin's signature open water swimming event.
Cap 2k fund-raising efforts:
- UsToo International for Prostate Cancer Support, Education, Awareness & Advocacy
- Swimability — Swimming Lessons for those in need
Swimability provides support for swimming lessons for underprivileged kids as well as some adults who would normally not take lessons.
In addition to the life-saving benefit of basic swimming competence, teaching children to swim gives them the skills needed to enjoy the health rewards of swimming, including improving a general health and fighting against obesity and diabetes. While the same benefits are had by adults, our hope is to offer parents the confidence around the water in order to best support their child's swim experience.
Us TOO International provides support for local and national "Us TOO" chapters to help fund peer-to-peer support and educational materials to assist men and their families/caregivers in making informed decisions about prostate cancer detection, treatment options and related side effects. Please help us support the men in your lives.
