From News 8 Austin’s website:

Central Texans ran, biked and swam through Zilker Park in the Barton Springs Pool Treeathlon Saturday morning to support Barton Springs and the trees surrounding it.

“Altogether we raised about $10,000 from people’s registrations and business sponsorships, so that was a great outcome for the trees. All this money will be transferred to Austin Park Foundation,” Mike Cannatti, with Friends of Barton Springs Pool, said.

Funds are to be used for purchasing and maintaining trees for Barton Springs Pool and the surrounding area.

Participants also listened to live music as they trekked through park.

Our thanks to Mike and the Friends of Barton Springs Pool for their help!
