Fort Myers, FL – Fort Myers pest control company, Larue Pest Management, Inc. and pool renovation company, Pool Pros, Inc. will be co-title sponsors of the 8th Annual Calusa Bug Chase 5K Run and BUG Crawl on Jan. 30, 2016 at the Calusa Nature Center. The race will benefit the Fort Myers Metro-McGregor Kiwanis Club’s BUG (Bringing Up Grades) Program.
The Kiwanis BUG (Bring UP Grades) program is designed to provide recognition to local elementary students who raise their grades to an acceptable range and maintain or continue to raise them from one grading period to the next. The Metro-McGregor Kiwanis currently has BUG programs at Orangewood and Littleton Elementary schools and is actively seeking more schools to participate.
Larue Pest Management and Pool Pros have a history of teaming up to support local fundraising events, including the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament.
“As two local, family-owned companies who share a deep commitment to children and learning, it’s only natural that we’ve become partners in supporting organizations that help strengthen education in our community.” Owner of Larue Pest Management, Keith Ruebeling said. “Besides, it’s called a BUG Chase. This event was made for us!”
