Here is more information on the organizations involved in this event:Explore Austin:
Explore Austin uses mentoring, leadership, and outdoor adventure to empower youth to reach their full potential. Through a leadership-based, outdoor adventure curriculum coupled with social-emotional learning components and long-term mentoring, Explore Austin is improving the well-being of each participant, their families, and the community.
This summer Explore Austin will send 20 teams of five Mentors and 15 youth, or "Explorers", across the country to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Texas. For many of our younger Explorers, this is their FIRST trip away from home and for some of our older teams, their very FIRST airplane ride. The money we raise through this event goes to creating these "firsts" for Explorers which, coupled with our unique adventure curriculum over a six-year period, help build their self-confidence, grit, and potential for success.

Jarrett & Jennie Customized Self Defense:
At Jarrett & Jennie Self Defense we believe that the right self-defense and safety knowledge, taught by the right coaches, can be an unparalleled vehicle to reclaiming one's own power. Teaching our students how to survive violence is just one aspect of what we do. Giving our students effective self-advocacy and boundary setting tools, and the confidence to use them in the moments when they are made to feel smaller, quieter, or without choice, is our truest “why.”
Through high-profile events and on platforms hosted by corporations, organizations, networks, businesses, gyms, schools and media outlets, we lead audiences to speak up, walk tall and exist safer, well beyond the conclusion of our courses. Our powerful, effective and accessible speaking and training events connect with everyday people in profound and transformative ways.
A huge thank you to our sponsors for this event:
