Fun Run 2015 Results

The Fort Bend Optimist Club Sugar Land held its 33rd  Annual Fun Run / Walk on November 1, 2015.  Over $22,000 was raised in Sponsor support and Runner / Walker Registrations.  Over $8,000 in merchandise and services were donated by our Sponsors and Supporters and were given away in a drawing and Silent Auction 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 Fifty (150) registered for the event this year.
