Where does the money go?
Race proceeds will go to benefit the Trees for Tempe program. After the 2008 summer monsoons destroyed more than 400 city-owned trees, Tempe was left struggling to find the resources needed to replenish its tree population. Now, with the revival of the Trees for Tempe program, residents and local businesses can take part in reconstructing the city’s landscape, one tree at a time!
What can you do?
The Trees for Tempe program welcomes monetary contributions and donations of time. There is no minimum dollar amount required to donate, and every cent is appreciated. Residents, organizations and local businesses can also donate their time to help replant the trees. Either way you choose to donate, you will have a direct impact on the quality of life in Tempe now and for years to come!
