Sure, there are plenty of fun runs for charity, but have you ever participated in a skipping fundraiser? That joyful, knee-raising innocence from childhood is back for a very good cause! Do512 Family is proud to be a sponsor of The Austin Skipathon on Saturday, September 23 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. in Mueller Lake Park. You’ll get to enjoy live music, food trucks and skipping to raise funds for over 6,300 children in the Central Texas foster care system.

During the event, Master Skipper Kim Corbin will lead 300+ skippers in a unified skip around Mueller Lake. This fun family-friendly event will include activities for kids of all ages and fitness levels. After a record-breaking group skip, participants can enjoy music, bounce houses, lawn games, food, beverages and more.

Your participation in The Austin Skipathon will directly benefit Foster Angels of Central Texas, a nonproft that strives to improve the lives of children in foster care. They ensure that each child has his or her basic needs met, and they provide life-enriching and life-enhancing experiences whenever possible that will shape a child’s life — and most of all, their future.

Foster Angels has helped over 12,000 children, youth, and young adults since 2010. We hope you’ll join us in supporting their service.
