We’re excited to announce that Fox Pest Control’s Dallas Forth Worth branch is sponsoring the 2022 Tour des Fleurs, a race fundraiser for the Dallas Arboretum! Many team members of our Fox Family in Texas have enjoyed spending time at the botanical gardens, and we’re looking forward to sponsoring this year’s event on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 7:00 am.
This year’s race offers both a quarter and half marathon course and is expected to draw approximately 2,500 participants. For the Tour des Fleurs, walkers and runners will start and finish on the Lakeside Trail of White Rock Lake, which is located directly in front of the Arboretum. Along the course, participants will not only run along the shores of white Rock Lake, but they will take in the scenery of many historic Dallas neighborhoods. Following the race, participants and their cheerleaders are invited to a post-race party and concert at the Dallas Arboretum’s Martin Rutchick Concert Stage and Lawn.
Funds raised from the event directly support the Arboretum’s community programming, providing North Texas children with unique educational opportunities in the Dallas Arboretum’s 66-acre “classroom.” According to the Dallas Arboretum website, the organization’s community programming is provided to more than 100,000 students a year, 65% of which are at the poverty-level. If you’re interested in lacing up your sneakers for a good cause, visit the Dallas Arboretum website to learn more.
