The Austin Skipathon is hoping to set a world record for most people skipping at once. On Sept. 23 at 9 a.m., participants will join Master Skipper Kim Corbin in a unified skip around Mueller Lake.
After the skip, participants will enjoy music, bounce houses, lawn games, food, beverages and more. The family-friendly event will include activities for kids of all ages and fitness levels. The event ends at noon.
This is the second annual Skipathon. Last year’s event raised more than $37,000. All proceeds benefit Foster Angels of Central Texas. Admission is $25 per adult, $15 for kids ages 4-10 and free for kids under 3. To register, visit austinskipathon.com.
