Raise money for The Dallas Arboretum Education Programs

Tour des Fleurs. Give Dallas Youth a Running Start!

Tour des Fleurs is asking runners to come together to bring awareness to our community by raising much needed funds for at-risk Dallas children.  Please consider using your Personal or Team fundraising page (we've already created one for you!) to help our program.

Did you Know?

  • 90% of DISD students live in economically disadvantaged conditions.* 
  •  Achievement gaps start early – in Kindergarten.*
  •  Achievement gaps are not stagnant.*  
  •  85% of students participating in the Dallas Arboretum’s after-school hands-on earth and life science programs improve their science content knowledge and understanding by 35%+.

Make the 2018 Tour des Fleurs your personal Tour de Force for kids in need.  By equipping youth with pivotal earth and life science knowledge, children fall in love with the world around them and face school challenges with more confidence and determination!  Run, have fun, and give at-risk Dallas children the start they need to shine in school.

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden has been enlightening North Texans of all ages with programming for nearly two decades.

The Arboretum makes learning fun for all ages through children's school programming, weekend and overnight family events, scout badge programs and teacher professional development. Children's School Programs are enhanced by the new Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden. This 8-acre garden will delight, educate and entertain students and visitors of all ages with 17 interactive galleries to explore. We offer on-site and off-site programs for school children and beyond, and many of our classes are hands-on to allow for deeper learning and enjoyment.
