On Saturday, March 24, the Fort Bend Education Foundation held its 9th Annual Schlumberger Education Expedition bike ride. Over 700 riders gathered at Hightower High School for this BP MS 150 recommended ride.

As a result of this successful ride the Foundation raised a little over $25,000 benefiting the Fort Bend Education Foundation programs which provide opportunities to enrich and enhance the quality of education for all Fort Bend ISD students through its Grants to Teachers and Schools programs.

Rest Stops/Lunch were staffed by volunteers including teachers and students from FBISD schools. They were vying for the Best Rest Stop award. Ridge Point High School Student Council won the award.

At the end of the ride, riders were able to enjoy a much deserved lunch that was catered by Bravos Mexican Restaurant and Subway; as well as great music.

Thanks to all of the riders and sponsors who supported the Fort Bend Education Foundation. They hope to see you again next year!
