2021 Riverbat Paddle Battle Raises $20,000 for ACC Foundation

October 22, 2021

The American Constructors Foundation is proud to announce a $20,000 donation to the Austin Community College Foundation through the 2021 Riverbat Paddle Battle! 

Due to COVID-19, this year’s event shifted to a virtual race to ensure the health and safety of our community. Instead of hosting the race on a single day, our friends, partners and community supported ACC by paddling at Rowing Dock on their own time, with 100% of proceeds providing students with scholarships, apprenticeships and workforce development opportunities. 

“We are thrilled to support the Austin Community College Foundation for a third year through the Riverbat Paddle Battle,” said Marty Burger, CEO of American Constructors. “This race is truly a passion project for American Constructors, and we are so thankful to our sponsors for their support of ACC and higher education.”

As part of the virtual race, all participants received a full day pass to Rowing Dock to paddle their own race at their own pace. The top finisher in each course length received a prize package.

The third annual event sets a new fundraising record, with the 2019 and 2020 events raising $10,000 and $15,000, respectively. 

Thank you to all our 2021 Riverbat Paddle Battle sponsors! We look forward to paddling again with you in 2022.
