On June 19, 2010, proceeds from the First Annual Barton Springs Treeathlon were transferred to Austin Parks Foundation with a brief ceremony at the Friends of Barton Springs Pool picnic.  As shown below, Friends of Barton Springs Pool presented a check for $7,500 to Austin Parks Foundation for the Barton Springs Tree Fund.

The presented funds were the proceeds from the First Annual Barton Springs Treeathlon which occurred on April 10, 2010.  The donated funds were the result of Treeathlon sponsorship and registration proceeds above event costs, and will be used for tree care (including treating existing heritage trees) and planting new trees in and around the Barton Springs Pool.  Additional details are shown in the tree planting map below and posted at http://austinparks.wordpress.com/2009/10/19/revised-barton-springs-tree-planting-plan/.

The proceeds included not only registration fees from event participants, but also generous donations from the following community sponsors:

Zilker Zealot Sponsor:  Vinson & Elkins, LLP,

Philosopher’s Rocker Sponsors:  Silicon Labs and Hamilton & Terrile, LLP,

Towering Moonlighter Sponsors:  The High Ball, Save Barton Creek Association and Friends of Barton Springs Pool

Parthenia’s Pecan Sponsors:   Sara and John Marler, Karen and Philip Ingram, Perry Lorenz, Lori McClure and Joe Martin, Ryan and Kim Battle, High Five Events, Tacodeli, Barley & Pfeiffer Architects, Maudie’s Tex-Mex, Shady Grove, and Jack & Adams Bicycles

Eliza’s Elm Sponsors:  Karmadillo, Saint Arnold Brewing Co., 1379 Family Sports Shop, Bicycle Sport Shop, Live Oak Brewing Co., Yum-Yum Frozen Yogurt, Barton Springs Nursery, Maine Root, Caffé Medici, and Texas Rowing Center

We are truly grateful for the generous support for the Treeathlon event, and look forward to even more success next year.
