GOT2SWIM 10K – LAKE AUSTIN

The Got2Swim 10K is a solo, 2-person or 3-person open water swim that begins at Lake Hills Park and ends at the 360 Bridge Park (Pennybacker Bridge). This epic swimming journey raises incredible awareness and drowning prevention funds. To connect participants to the Colin’s Hope cause, each athlete is encouraged to swim in honor of a child who has lost their life to or experienced a drowning. Swimmers are accompanied by a water safety team throughout their journey including a personal Water Guardian kayaker, life guards, and Lake Police. Sign up for our mailing list to be added to the Got2Swim communications list. Be sure to select “Got2Swim.”

TENTATIVE 2019 EVENT: FRIDAY, AUGUST 16


COLIN’S HOPE KIDS TRIATHLON

The Colin’s Hope Kids Triathlon is a non-competitive swimming, bicycling, and running event for kids ages 5-15. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.  Just as in the Got2Swim, participants are encouraged to “Tri” in honor of a child who has lost their life to or experienced a drowning. This event is designed to build confidence by allowing each participant to complete all three disciplines on their own, as well promote water safety and drowning prevention among families. Participation medals, t-shirts, goodie bags, age-group awards and prizes for top fundraisers are provided each year. Sign up for our mailing list to be added to the Kids Triathlon communications list. Be sure to select “Kids Triathlon.”

TENTATIVE 2019 EVENT: SUNDAY, AUGUST 25
