In September 2017 I will circumnavigate Lake Tahoe on a standup paddle board. I am taking on this challenge to raise money and awareness for The Flatwater Foundation. Flatwater provides access to mental health therapy for families and individuals affected by cancer. I have not personally had cancer but I have had many friends and family members that have battled the disease. Through their journeys, I have come to understand the importance of taking care of one's mind when navigating the disease.
