Tour de Kale History
Tour de Kale was founded in February 2000, a group of Kale Watkins friends saw fitting to host a benefit bike ride to help raise money to cover Kale Watkins medical expenses after a skiing accident that left him disabled. Kale, a Denton native, had always been (and continues to be) an outdoor enthusiast. The event was a major success, raising nearly $80,000. Thanks to participants, sponsors and volunteers like yourself who are willing to go the Extra Mile and raise money for this wonderful cause. TDK drew an amazing response right from the get-go and continues to be a superbly organized and executed event. Very scenic, awesome support, good lunch. Everybody is welcome.
We have collected so many pictures and information over the years that it is difficult to store it all in one place. For more info and to see how we have evolved over the years, please take a minute to peruse our archives that have been preserved by the hard work of our friend Ronnie Gallimore. Thank You Ronnie!
