Fort Bend Optimist Club Sugar Land holds successful fundraiser

On your mark, ready, set, go, to run for this annual event.

The Fort Bend Optimist Club Sugar Land held its 30th Annual Fun Run / Walk on

November 4. Over $19,000 was raised in sponsor support and runner / walker registrations. In addition over $5,000 in merchandise and services were given away in a drawing at the end of the race.

The proceeds go to fund various youth related projects in Fort Bend County. The largest project is the College Scholarship Program in which we give to a graduating senior in each of the High Schools $1,000 payable to the University/College they are planning on attending.

One hundred seventeen registered for the event this year.
